The Italian news agency ANSA said the rescuers found the remains last night near a lake about 10 hours after the avalanche, but had to wait until daybreak today to remove the bodies.
The avalanche occurred near the town of Moeno in the Val di Fiemme, a valley in the South Tyrol area.
Nearby, another avalanche rushed past four Italians who were hiking yesterday after taking off their skis. All survived, with one suffering a broken leg, ANSA reported.
On a separate peak in the valley, six Russians were killed on Friday night when their snowmobile towing a sled defied a ban on vehicles on a dangerous slope and crashed.
