Authorities say the teacher took a group of students on a closed ski slope in the French Alps

A French schoolteacher faces involuntary manslaughter charges after an avalanche killed two of his students.

Authorities say the teacher took a group of students on a closed ski slope in the French Alps -- despite signs and a safety net that were put up to keep people off the course.

It had been closed since the start of the ski season due to a high avalanche risk.

A 16-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy died after the avalanche, as did a Ukrainian skier.

The teacher is still in the hospital.
