A Spanish skier died on Saturday after being caught in an avalanche in the Pyrenees mountains, police said, adding they were investigating whether the man had been off piste.


The 31-year-old Spaniard from Barcelona was skiing in the Baqueira Beret ski resort when the avalanche hit, a spokesman for the Mossos d'Esquadra police force in the northeastern region of Catalonia told AFP. 
He would not reveal his identity.
The skier was transferred to hospital but died there from his injuries, the spokesman said.
