Emergency personnel have responded to an avalanche that took place on Boulder Mountain near Revelstoke on Friday.

Initial reports indicate one person was buried and recovered from the slide, but the total number of people involved is unknown, said Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky of the Revelstoke RCMP.

The avalanche took place on Turbo Hill, which was the site of the March 13, 2010, Boulder Mountain avalanche.

RCMP, paramedics, and Search & Rescue have responded to the incident.

UPDATE: Shortly after this story was first posted, Grabinsky e-mailed to say that all involved snowmobilers were on their way off Boulder Mountain and that there were no serious injuries.

The avalanche danger was rated high in the alpine and considerable at treeline on Friday. Avalanche Canada issued a Special Public Avalanche Warning for the area on Wednesday.
