Houston Search and Rescue was called out the evening of Dec. 28 to help extract two young people from the trail to the Alpine Cabin at the Morice Nordic Ski Trails. After snowshoeing all day, the two had not reached the cabin destination and at 6 p.m. that day turned around to go back. With darkness and exhaustion setting in they used their cell phone and called for help.
Houston Search and Rescue got four local snowmobilers to pickup Clayton and Rebecca Tait. Trail conditions to the Alpine were tough as the snowshoe pair sank in over their knees in the powder snow.
Clayton and Rebecca thanked Search and Rescue and local volunteers who helped get them off the mountain.
