Stranded snowboarder rescued on Vancouver's North Shore
Snowboarder went out of bounds and became lost near Cypress Bowl
Rescue crews on Vancouver’s North Shore were able to reach a snowboarder reported stranded near Cypress Bowl about 12:30 A.M. PT Sunday morning, just days after rescuing a man after a gruelling two-day search in the same area.
North Shore Search and Rescue said the boarder had gone out of bounds Saturday afternoon and got lost in the Montizambert Creek area, a steep ravine just north of Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver.
The man was not injured.
On Tuesday, rescuers picked up 33-year-old Sebastien Boucher, from the mountain after he took a wrong turn snowboarding and ended up lost for two nights in freezing temperatures.
Cypress Mountain officials say it's not possible to go out of bounds on the area's slopes without passing a number of signs and a rope barrier. They said they planned on billing Boucher $10,000 to help meet the rescue team's expenses.
