Rossland Search and Rescue: local heroes
On Wenesday, January 11, a lone skier was enjoying the beautiful, but rather cold, evening on Record Ridge. The temperature was about minus 20 C. or perhaps even lower up there. Night falls early, and the moon was bright. But when it came time to find a way back down the mountain, the moon was not quite bright enough, especially where there were trees shading the route, and the skier’s headlamp stopped working. Fortunately, his cell phone was functioning and he was able to call 911.
