Two backcountry skiers are dead after an avalanche in Italy's Dolomites on Friday. The two men were skiing on Forcella Staunies peak near the village of Cortina D'Amperazzo when they apparently triggered the slide. Rescuers are still searching the debris to see if anyone else had been caught in the avalanche.
