Three people have been killed in a ski-helicopter crash in a remote area of Canada.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in west-central British Columbia said seven people were aboard the helicopter, with four others left badly hurt.

The helicopter was carrying a group of skiers on Monday and went down near the town of Terrace, about 110 kilometres from the Alaskan border.

A New Zealander is understood to be among the injured survivors.
