A Connell man was killed Monday after he was caught in an avalanche while snowmobiling in Montana.
The slide happened at 4 p.m. Monday about 12 miles east of Kalispell, said the Flathead County sheriff's office.
Charles John Dundon III, 33, triggered the slide while riding across an open slope, said Undersheriff Jordan White.
Dundon and another snowmobiler were caught in the slide, but the second man, also from Washington, wasn't buried.

After searching for Dundon, the second man rode to Hungry Horse to call for help.
Dundon's body was found using a signal from his transceiver, said authorities.
It was the second avalanche death in Northwest Montana this month.
