    At least three people were killed and 24 injured Saturday when an avalanche swept down Boulder Mountain near Revelstoke, B.C., during an annual snowmobiling event.
    Hundreds of people from B.C., Alberta and Washington State were watching the Big Iron Shootout — some 400 km west of Calgary — when the slide struck about 3:30 p.m. local time.
    A large-scale rescue operation was launched involving police, search-and-rescue crews and paramedics from around the region and beyond.
    However, officials weren’t certain how many people were involved.
