The mysterious death of a 52-year-old Vancouver woman found frozen near a bunny hill on Grouse Mountain is being investigated by the B.C. Coroners Service.

North Vancouver RCMP were called out to the mountain shortly after 3 p.m. on Tuesday by staff who found the body in snow and bushes about 100 metres from the gently sloping Paradise ski run, RCMP spokesman Cpl. Richard De Jong said Wednesday.

The woman was found frozen in a tree well. The body was near the local bear habitat shed, but it was "fully intact and in no state of decomposition," De Jong said.
