Snowboarders call it the "playground". Mid afternoon Wednesday, Deschutes County Search and Rescue were called to that area after an adventurous snowboarder landed in a precarious position due to icy conditions: “The one gentlemen unfortunately had got himself caught in a tree, the tree was actually above an area of cliffs or hills with about a 60-degree slope. He was 50 to 100 feet above the ground in this tree.” Lieutenant Scott Shelton of the Deschutes County Sheriffs Office says 17 rescue team members worked from mid afternoon into the evening hours Wednesday night to bring Stephen Kresge, 38, of Portland to safety.  Shelton says the people with Kresge did the right thing by calling for help as soon as possible. This allowed Search and Rescue to reach the scene and work with enough daylight.
