RCMP Detail February's Six SAR Calls

Golden RCMP say that the month of February resulted in six calls for support from Golden and District Search and Rescue.

Three of those six calls resulted in rescues, while the other three saw Search and Rescue called off.

The three rescues that did occur involved the retrieval of two missing sledders, and two injured skiers.

Golden RCMP Constable Spencer Lainchbury says “We can’t thank these volunteers enough for all their hard work and dedication.”

Only one of those six calls involved an avalanche, but the RCMP are still advising back-country users to check the mountain forecasts before they head out.
