Rescuers in Summit County locate 2 overdue snowmobilers
KAMAS — A team of rescuers with the Summit County Sheriff Office located two overdue snowmobilers in the Lambert Meadows area, along Mirror Lake highway Wednesday night.
The two experienced snowmobilers had been dressed for harsh conditions and were expected home at 3 p.m.
"It can range from open field and valleys, to thick woods," said Summit County Sheriff Sgt. Ron Bridge. "There are trails up there that are groomed, but if you leave the trail way, you can easily become disoriented and lost."
When the men had not returned by nightfall, search teams deployed on the ground. Heavy snow in the area prevented an air search, according to the agency.
They combed the area for about three hours, locating the men in good condition just before 10 p.m. The men were walking out of the area, after getting their machines stuck in deep snow.
