A back country skier has been missing in the vicinity of Whitewater near Nelson for two days.
RCMP say 47 year old Edward Perello went skiing alone at 8 am Monday. He was reported missing late Tuesday.
But S/Sgt Leanne Tuchscherer says they’ve been told the experienced skier is in good shape.
But while temperatures could be worse the conditions aren’t great.
Up to 25 people have been involved in the ground search since Tuesday night.
An RCMP helicopter was brought in for about an hour but no luck.
Anyone who may have seen Perello should contact RCMP.
