Sun Peaks Stranded Skiers All Found OK

SUN PEAKS, B.C. - An American snowboarder who spent a cold night lost on a B.C. mountain is OK after she was found by search-and-rescue teams.

A woman in her 40s from Washington state became separated from her partner after the pair went of bounds at Sun Peaks Resort, northeast of Kamloops, on Friday afternoon.

Alan Hobler of Kamloops Search and Rescue says the woman was discovered at around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday in an area known as The Gils.

Meanwhile, two sisters who were skiing and snowboarding were also reported missing Friday afternoon after venturing out of bounds.

Sun Peaks spokesman Christopher Nicolson says the sisters were found before midnight.

Nicolson says the organization is considering charging the boundary-jumpers for the resources the resort spent trying to find them.

If that happens, Nicolson says the resort would only bill the skier and snowboarders for the costs incurred by Sun Peaks and not any resources used by search-and-rescue teams. (CHNL)
