Two people died on Saturday in skiing-related incidents in Norway. One of them was a 54 year old Swedish woman who was killed in an accident in Hemsedal, northwest of Oslo, in the afternoon.

The woman was slaloming with her son when she stopped at a particularly icy and steep part of the piste to take off her skis. She is thought to have lost her balance on the slope and slid into a tree. Her son found her but police say he did not see the accident happen.

Another person was found dead on Saturday morning on a slalom piste in the Norefjell ski resort, south of Hemsedal.

There were no witnesses.
