Revelstoke RCMP say that a missing skier has been found, deceased, out of bounds at Revelstoke Mountain Resort in the Greely Creek drainage area.

The 24-year-old skier, identified as Michael David Foster, was reported missing Friday. His body was found by Revelstoke Search and Rescue after sunset at about 4:45 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 17.

The Revelstoke RCMP are assisting the BC Coroners Service in the investigation into Foster’s death.

The RCMP remind those using the backcountry to be prepared and always carry extra food, water and a communication device. It is advisable to travel with others and to always notify a responsible person as to your expected time of return.


Revelstoke RCMP are investigating the case of a missing male.

Michael David Foster, 24, was reported missing on Friday, Feb. 16. He had not shown up for work for three days in Airdire.

Foster was last known to have stayed at the Revelstoke Backpacker Hostel on Feb. 13.

He purchased a three-day pass for Revelstoke Mountain Resort for Feb. 13-15.

His blue truck was found in the resort’s parking lot, covered in “several days’ snow,” an RCMP news release said, “confirming the belief that he has been present in the community for awhile.”

Banking information and cell phone usage indicate that Foster’s last transactions were on Feb. 13.

The RCMP are asking the public to report if they’ve seen Foster.

He is described as being 24 years old, a Caucasian male, 5’6”, with blue eyes, blond hair and an average build.

Foster was suspected to be skiing alone with minimal backcountry experience.

He is originally from Aurora, Ont. and is currently living in Airdrie, Alta.

RMR ski patrol is sweeping the in-bound areas and Revelstoke Search and Rescue is deploying resources to search the out of bounds areas.
