The search for two stranded hikers on the Dam Mountain trail on Grouse has ended with good news.
North Shore Rescue’s Bruce Moffat says the heavy snow and poor visibility made for a difficult extraction.
He adds they weren’t ready for winter conditions.
“They did not have snowshoes. They had snow at their knees and weren’t prepared for the winter conditions that exist up on the mountains right now.”
“We had three team members with extra clothing and snowshoes following in behind and by the time they were offloaded, they were able to their way out.”
They were given warm clothes, but are going to be fine.
