North Shore Rescue says they have located 7 stranded hikers near Grouse Mountain.
Team Leader Mike Danks says the group was lost somewhere between Crown and Goat Mountain, in the Hanes Valley area which is closed for the winter.
“These people went past closed signs to get into that area. Again, this is something we really want to stress to be people not to do.”
Danks says fortunately no one in the group is hurt, but the area the group was lost in is fairly treacherous, steep, and packed with snow this time of year.
NSR says the group was not prepared for the winter conditions.
Rescuers say the group is aged 27 to 50.
