A 22-year-old ski tourer fell hundreds of meters to her death when a cornice collapsed on Litlskjorta mountain in Øksendal. She and her friend had reached the 1552 m high peak when the accident happened. A rescue crew arrived by helicopter and could locate and recover her body. On April 14th 2014, 3 men died in an avalanche in the same area.
5 climbers died in a similar cornice fall accident in Canada the day before.
