BEND, OR -- A Eugene pair was rescued from Kwolh Butte, Sunday night, after their snowmobile got stuck. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says 46-year-old Jeffrey Roos called 911 at about 7:45 p.m. to report he and 18-year-old Sarah Lang needed help.
Two Deschutes County Search and Rescue volunteers responded to Edison Butte Sno Park and rode a tracked side by side about five miles, reaching the two just before 11 p.m. They were found cold, but otherwise okay, and were helped out of the backcountry.
The Sheriff's Office reminds those traveling into the backcountry to prepare for the unexpected by carrying essentials, like a shovel, avalanche beacon and probe.
