The name of the Colville resident who died Saturday has not been released.
Mike Nielsen of Priest Lake Search & Rescue told the Coeur d'Alene Press that the man was snowmobiling with friends and family when he failed to meet them at a rendezvous spot.
A member of the group searched for the man and found him under his snowmobile in the Camas Prairie area just across the Boundary County line.
Nielsen said it appears the man left the roadway and hit a snow bank, then went over the front the machine that landed on top of him.
