Two skiers lost for four days in the backcountry off the back of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort were found just after noon Sunday.

According to Golden-Fields RCMP Cst. Spencer Lainchbury, the hotel the duo were staying at reported them missing Sunday morning after they failed to check out of their hotel Saturday night.
