The Deschutes County Search and Rescue was activated to help search for a missing skier on Mt. Bachelor Thursday night. Around 5:30, the search team along with other search teams from around the State and Mt. Bachelor Ski Patrol began the search for Jake Denham, 14, of Portland. Apparently Denham was last seen on the hill around 3 p.m. getting on the NW Express Ski lift. Around 2 a.m., Denham was found on Mt. Bachelor in good condition. He had lost one of his skis while skiing down a steep slope. He was able to get out of the steep terrain and build a snow enclosure to get out of the elements. When rescuers found him, it was -5 degrees outside. He was taken to the Mt. Bachelor Guest Services Building where he was evaluated by paramedics and reunited with his family.
