ANCHORAGE — A 34-year old heli-skiing guide died Sunday in a backcountry incident on a mountain near Haines.
Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said Monday that Christian Arcadio Cabanilla was killed in the incident.
He was a guide for Southeast Alaska Backcountry Adventures based in Haines, Peters said.
Cabanilla and two clients were traversing an area when snow gave way underneath them, and they fell down the mountain, Peters said.
The other two skiers suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
