BANFF (660 NEWS) – A 70-year-old man from Winnipeg has died while hiking on Mount Temple in Banff National Park.

Corporal Chris Warren with Lake Louise RCMP says a search helicopter was sent out on Thursday night after another hiking group reported him missing.

The man was found unresponsive and because of nightfall and where the man was located, the search had to be suspended.

The body was recovered early Friday morning.

He’s being described as an experienced hiker who was on the trail alone.
