Add Two More Stranded Snowmobilers to This Year’s List
It's happened again: Snowmobilers needing to be rescued. This time two Minnesota men were snowmobiling when they became stranded. The two snowmobilers were on steep terrain with low snow levels and couldn't get out by themselves.
West Yellowstone's Gallatin County Sheriff's Search and Rescue and the U.S. Forest Service responded to the 911 call placed at 5:15 p.m. on Monday, January 14th. The two men in their 20's were located after about one hour but rescuers needed to find alternate routes to reach them due to the steep terrain. Both men were rescued in good health and returned to town.
