Fernie and Sparwood SAR were involved in a late night rescue of two stranded snowmobilers in the Coal Creek Pass area.

The SAR teams were able to snowmobile within a short distance of the duo, snowshoe to them and get them and their machines out.

The use of a satellite SOS device was critical in avoiding a cold night outdoors.
