A Foreign Office spokeswoman said Alisdair Ross, aged 59, was the only British casualty in the accident at the Palandoken ski resort in the Erzurum province.
Mr Ross died of a broken neck as a result of the avalanche.
He was on holiday with a group of around 14 British people at the popular ski resort.
Rescuers managed to save four other Canadian and British tourists, who had gone trekking at the Palandoken ski resort in eastern Erzurum province despite warnings of possible avalanches, said Erzurum Governor Mustafa Malay.
