An Austrian heli-skiing guide is dead after falling into a crevasse while taking a photo on a mountainside in northwestern British Columbia this weekend.  The 47 year-old was one of two guides leading a group of four skiers Sunday afternoon on the Swanson Glacier.  Witnesses saw the man taking a photo when the snow underneath him gave way, leading to his fall into a 35 meter deep crevasse.
