For the second time in a week, North Shore Rescue crews were near Cypress Mountain to bail an out-of-bounds snowboarder out of trouble.
This time it was a man celebrating his 30th birthday out of bounds Saturday night.
Team leader Tim Jones says it took his team two hours to get to the man after establishing voice contact, and when they found him he was uninjured apart from being a bit wet but dehydrated.
He says it was the same type of situation as Sebastian Boucher, rescued earlier this week, and that's frustrating for crews who now have to risk their lives.
Jones has a warning for anyone heading out of bounds:
"It's Russian Roulette right now. Your luck is going to run out."
Crews are still struggling to recover twenty thousand dollars worth of equipment used to rescue Boucher Tuesday.
