Lost snowboarder found outside KHMR

On Mar. 8 at 7:31 p.m., Golden RCMP were advised by Kicking Horse Mountain Resort that a male snowboarder had been reported missing.

On Mar. 8 at 7:31 p.m., Golden RCMP were advised by Kicking Horse Mountain Resort that a male snowboarder from Calgary had been reported missing by friends.

The friends reported that they were separated from the male, on one of the runs, and that the male had failed to return to the base of the mountain.

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort conducted sweeps of the mountain and were not able to locate the missing male, however a single snowboard track was located going into an out of bounds area, known as Canyon Creek.

Ski patrollers were unable to ski into the area at night due to weather conditions, and Golden and District Search and Rescue was advised. The following morning, GADSAR conducted a search of the mountain by helicopter. The male was located, and advised rescuers that he spent the night in a tree well to keep dry. The male was then transported back to Golden via helicopter, and did not sustain any injuries.
