Police said Ms Raspa’s death does not appear suspicious, but a cause of death is yet to be determined, ABC News reported. 

The 25-year-old, who had moved to Whistler from Perth in early 2017, was reported missing when she failed to turn up to work.

Her phone was found about 6.30am the following morning in a lakeside park some five kilometres away.

Police revealed in December Ms Raspa sent text messages to friends to say she was lost at about 1.15am on November 23.

Police said they believed Raspa caught a bus between the bar and the park where her phone was found along with her backpack and jacket.

Ms Raspa is the third young Australian to die in the ski resort town in recent years. 

In 2015 the body of teenager Jake Kermond was found after he went missing from his hotel weeks earlier.

In 2014 a 19-year-old Australian was found dead in his staff accommodation, and is believed to have died of an overdose after taking cocaine and sleeping pills.

The local Coroner’s office is working with Ms Raspa’s family to have her remains returned to Australia.
