two riders were caught in a mid-sized avalanche, on the south face of the Mont-Fort (Verbier, Switzerland), while accessing the FWT Challenger competition venue.
One athlete remained on top of the slide, the second rider was half-buried and rapidly dug out by the FWT safety team and other riders nearby.
Both riders were conscious and their state was assessed to be in stable conditions with no severe trauma, and were taken to Sion hospital for a medical check.
