Snowmobilers, First Responders Reported Safe After Overnight Stay In "Rugged" Area


Rescuers were able to reach two snowmobilers stranded a “rugged” bowl area in southeastern Cache County late Monday, but the entire party was forced to hike to a cabin for shelter overnight due to low visibility.

According to Cache County Sheriff's Lt. Doyle Peck, Search and Rescue was called out on Monday at around 6:15 p.m. in response to a report of two stranded snowmobilers from the Weber County area. Peck said three riders originally descended into a bowl near Hardware Ranch, but only one of the snowmobilers was able to ride out and call for help.


“It’s a really rugged area,” Peck said. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
