2 doctors at Tram Tower 2, Squaw Valley

Submitted by Dirk Schoonmaker

Two hikers left Shirley Canyon to walk up the trail to High Camp. Turned up into Silverado Canyon, though and ended up under Tram Tower 2, not knowing which way to go. They called 911 and gave them their GPS coordinates. We were dispatched and 4 hikers drove up Mountain Run to the South Side Mountain Run and parked just south of the Funitel, where the old road goes to the tram towers. Hiked 20 minutes and found the hikers, cold and embarrassed (but otherwise fine) under Tram Tower 2.

Hiked them back to the truck and drove back to Command Post.
