2014-12-31 Lost Snowmobilers Shotgun Area

New Years Eve, December 31, 2014. Fremont County Search and Rescue was called out to help 5 individuals from North Dakota find their way out of a narrowing canyon SE of Arange Peak, West Island Park. The Unit set up base camp in the Stamp Meadows Parking lot. Prior to Unit members responding to their location, Fremont County Search and Rescue Commander attempted to direct the group out by phone. Shortly after 9:00 p.m., the commander made the decision to dispatch Unit members to aid with the rescue. Senior and Junior members responded. The stranded party was advised to start a fire to stay warm and assist rescue attempts. Unit members headed out on snowmobiles into the drainage area and narrowing canyon. Temperatures on the mountain ranged from -12 to more than -20. Contact was made with the individuals sometime into the New Year. The stranded were guided out and rejoined their colleagues in the parking lot. Unit members made it back to St. Anthony and outlying areas by 4:30 a.m.
