North Shore Search and Rescue plucked two inexperienced hikers off of Seymour Mountain earlier this evening after they became stranded on a steep snow slope.
Search Manager Douglas Pope says the call came in around quarter to 6.
“We launched a rescue from our SAR station at Bone Creek, we helicopter two teams into the summit, did a rope rescue from above and brought the two subjects and our member back up to the summit and helicoptered everyone out.”
Pope says it’s a good reminder to be equipped before venturing into the backcountry as the female subject wore sandals into a snow shed.
Both hikers are ok.
