On Sunday, it was confirmed that a Swedish woman in her 25s has died in the avalanche, while a woman was missing.

The missing woman, also in her 25s, was found dead on Monday, the Swedish Foreign Ministry now confirms.

"The woman was a native of Götaland. Relatives are notified," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs writes in an email to TT [Tidningarnas Telegrambyra].

The women rode together in a group of four off-piste skiers. Two of them escaped the avalanche.

Due to bad weather conditions, the rescue team was unable to reach the scene by helicopter on Sunday, but only by snowmobile. On Monday, the weather was better and then the other missing body could be found, the AP news agency reported.

The avalanche danger on Sunday reached level three on a scale of five.

During the season, several Swedes have died in avalanches, both in Sweden and abroad. In addition to the two women who died in this weekend's avalanche, three Swedes have died in the Alps.

On March 12, two Swedish men died in an avalanche in Verbier, Switzerland. They went off-piste and the weather was bad. On March 9, a Swedish man in his 50s died in an avalanche in the Italian Alps.
