Europe's whiteout death toll reaches at least TWENTY as two snowboarders are killed in Bulgarian avalanche - after 1,000ft wall of snow bursts through Swiss hotel restaurant while guests are eating

At least 20 people have now died across Europe amid a week of heavy snow with two snowboarders becoming the latest victims after an avalanche in Bulgaria on Friday.

Red Cross workers said the snowboarders ignored warnings and went out on the slopes and triggered the avalanche in the southwestern Pirin Mountains, with their bodies discovered around midday.

Meanwhile a power company employee suffered a heart attack while repairing supply lines damaged by the snow in Albania on Friday, in addition to another 17 deaths reported earlier in the week.

Avalanche warnings have been placed at critical levels across much of Europe following heavy snow which has triggered red weather alerts - as forecasters warn the snow is set to continue into the middle of next week.

A state of emergency has been declared across much of southern Germany with troops brought in to help people who have become trapped, while the army has also been deployed in Albania, Montenegro and Serbia.

Three guests at an hotel in the Swiss alps were left injured on Thursday after an avalanche slammed into the restaurant around 4.30 pm, burying 25 cars outside.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Condolences to those whose families and friends have been lost in this way; but to trigger an avalanche by the act of skiing, and defying logical warnings that this could happen?!?

This is just lousy logic.
