The further investigation revealed that the driver was also on a court ordered condition not to consume alcohol. A fourth appearance has been issued to the driver of the vehicle for  failing to comply with said conditions.

Unhappy roommates

Lost snowmobiler

Golden RCMP were notified of a lost snowmobiler in the Quartz Creek area. Further inquiries were made through search and rescue. It was determined that the person had been sledding with a group of friends when he went off course.

The sledder went down some steep terrain and was unable to get out of the area. This area where the sledder became trapped is a part of Parks Canada, and as such parks staff completed the rescue operation. In addition there are not supposed to be snow machines in this part of the park.
