Thanks to a break in weather, the search for two missing snowshoers on Cypress Mountain has resumed.
North Shore members suspended the search on Wednesday because of snowfall and high avalanche risk.
43-year-old Roy Lee and 64-year-old Chun Lam have now been missing for 5 days.
Team leader Mike Danks was asked if the search has turned into a recovery mission.
“You know, I think we’re going to have to take a look at this day by day. Today, we finally got a break in the weather, so we’re going to take advantage and cover up as much ground as we can. We’ve been very limited since this search began on Boxing Day. These guys are going to be hypothermic, at best.”
Members will be searching the Strachan meadows area of Cypress Mountain.
Lee and Lam were reported missing on Christmas Day.
