ASHLAND, OR -- A Bend snowboarder was rescued, Saturday night, after he got lost on Mt. Ashland, in Southern Oregon. Ski Patrol and Jackson County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue teams were deployed at about 6 p.m., to look for 40-year-old Eric Hostetler. He left from the Mt. Ashland ski area parking lot, and his wife contacted Ski Patrol at the lodge when he didn't return as expected. 

 

Searchers followed his tracks in the snow more than two miles through Cottonwood Creek drainage, and found Hostetler at about 9 p.m. He is an experienced snowboarder dressed for the conditions and not hurt. 

 

SAR officials urge skiers and snowboarders to refrain from going outside the boundaries of a ski area, especially at the end of the day when darkness and cold can affect both survival and search efforts.
