Deschutes County Search and Rescue crews joined a search on Mt. Hood this morning. A snowboarder is hoping rescuers can find him soon after he got lost Sunday on Mount Hood and was forced to spend the night in below-freezing temperatures. Rescuers have been able to talk to the 26-year-old man by cell phone. He said he hiked up the mountain Sunday afternoon and went out of bounds near Timberline Ski Resort's Paradise Trail. Then, as he descended, he got lost as he snowboarded down in blizzard conditions. He found shelter under a tree to get through the extremely cold night and continues to communicate with searchers. Temperatures dropped to a mere 16 degrees on the mountain Sunday night and visibility was extremely poor. But rescuers said conditions were improving today.
