The skiers had gone missing during an avalanche in Arêches-Beaufort in the Savoie department of the French Alps on March 4th.
Their corpses were found on Thursday at 10am during a reconnaissance mission led by French security police, the CRS and a dozen members of the local ski patrol.
The two skiers from Normandy, aged 47 and 49, had disappeared after the avalanche in the area of Planay area of Savoie.
Their discovery was made possible due to “clues left on the surface [of the snow] as it melted,” Cyril Anceau, chief of the CRS division leading the mission told BFM TV.
Both bodies were then helicoptered to the local funeral home.
There were several deadly avalanches in France this past winter. In February a father and daughter were swept to the deaths whilst skiing on a closed piste near Val d'Isere.
That tragedy came just days after three skiers were killed by an avalanche in the Pyrenees.
