(CNN) -- The search for a missing man who was caught in an avalanche in Washington state over the weekend could resume at first light on Monday, a spokeswoman for the King County Sheriff's Office said.

The effort to find Mitch Hungate was suspended indefinitely due to poor weather conditions, according to Sgt. Katie Larson.

Heavy snow fell in the Cascade Mountains and avalanches hit near Snoqualmie Pass, one on Granite Mountain and the other on Red Mountain near the Alpental ski area, CNN affiliate KOMO said.

The station reported that Hungate, 61, was hiking with two other men when an avalanche carried all three about 1,200 feet down a slope at speeds of more than 50 mph.

The other two men "sustained injuries," KOMO reported.

A woman caught in another avalanche died of her injuries, Larson said.

She was just behind a group of hikers close to Interstate 90 in northwest Washington when an avalanche struck. The three hikers searched for 45 minutes once they realized the woman was missing and found her buried under 5 feet of snow. She later died, according to Larson.
