GADSAR responded to a single male snowboarder who had boarderd outside of KHMR boundaries and into Canyon Creek. The snowboarder became stranded and was able to alert other skiers in the area of his situation. GADSAR was notified and a team gained access to the snowboarder via KHMR. 2 GADSAR members set up camp with the snowboarder and spent the night with him, ensuring he was warm, dry and well fed. Another GADSAR member skied 2 members of the public out of Canyon Creek. GADSAR flew the snowboarder out the next morning at first light. The snowboarder was uninjured.
