2016-4-3 Stranded and Exhausted Snowmoblier on Two Top Mountain

Around 4:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon Fremont County Search & Rescue (FCSAR) responded to Two Top Mountain (North East of Island Park) to locate and rescue a snowmobiler whose sled became stuck. After hours of attempting to dig the snowmobile out to no avail, the Oakfield, NY gentleman became fatigued. He made the decision to call for help and dialed 911. FCSAR made phone contact with the individual, and he informed them he was going to put branches under his track to try to get enough traction to get his sled out. Search members located the stranded individual at 6:40 p.m. and freed his sled. Searchers then led him back to his vehicle parked at Targhee Pass.
