Search for missing skiers in the Salmo area continues this morning

South Columbia Search and Rescue is back out this morning, after a search for 3 skiers began yesterday.

A number of local groups were activated yesterday in the Erie Creek area, after the skiers activated a spot beacon.

They searched by sled last night but were unable to reach them, standing down at 1:30 this morning.

South Columbia and Nelson searchers are back on site this morning with multiple skiers, snowmobiles, and a helicopter in operation.
