An avalanche in an off-piste ski area killed one person in Tromsoe in Norway's far north on Sunday while a second person escaped unharmed, police said.

"One person was found and underwent medical treatment at the site," but was later "confirmed dead", police spokesman Gunnar Baardsen said.

The second person caught in the avalanche was not injured.

Baardsen gave no information about the identity of the dead person, but Norwegian media reported it was a man in his 30s.

Avalanche warnings have been issued in the area on an almost daily basis lately, Baardsen said.
