Two people have been hurt in an avalanche in Switzerland, according to local police in the Valais canton.
A spokesperson said it was initially thought eight others had been in the path of the snowfall too, but they were found to be safe shortly afterwards.
The injured pair in the Col de Fenestral area are not seriously hurt, authorities said.
The risk level in the Swiss Alps is currently at three (considerable) on a scale of five.
Police have issued a warning on their website, saying several avalanches had been triggered in the southern region, which is towards the French border.
Rescue services are warning skiers to stay on marked slopes only.
