Snowboarder Found Safe After 6-Hour Search

MOUNT BACHELOR, OR -- A snow boarder was rescued after a nearly 6-hour search on Mount Bachelor. The 35-year old California man reportedly saw boundary signs yesterday afternoon, but chose to go around them in search of fresh powder. 

 

About 20 Deschutes County Search and Rescue volunteers and several U.S. Forest Service workers responded to the area after Andrew Wong's friends reported he had separated from the group. Eventually, Wongrealized he was not where he thought he was and decided to board down the mountain. He was found in good condition near Lava Lake, just before 10 p.m.
