STOWE, Vt. (WCAX) - This week’s big snowstorm had Stowe Mountain Rescue crews busy.
Authorities say they responded to three calls in 24 hours on Monday. The first was for snowmobilers who got hurt while on a tour. The second was for two skiers who became disoriented and cold in the backcountry after dark above Stowe Mountain Resort’s Cross Country Ski Center. The third was for an injured snowboarder who was out of bounds at the resort. All were rescued and are OK.
Rescue teams say people need to bring a headlamp, spare clothing, water, food, batteries, a first aid kit, a way to light a fire and a compass.
