All attempts at the scene to save the man were unsuccessful and he succumbed to his injuries.
The RCMP believe speed and alcohol are a factor in the crash.
The Northern Rockies RCMP want to remind ATV riders to be cautious when riding in the backcountry and to wear appropriate safety equipment. With better weather conditions now here, more ATV enthusiasts will be making their way into the back country and we just want to remind riders to follow the same rules as if they were driving a car on the roads. Safety first and please do not consume alcohol when planning to ride.
