2 Snowboarders at Alpine Meadows- Lakeview to Paige Meadows

Submitted by Dirk Schoonmaker

  2 snowboarders left the top of Lakeview chair at Alpine Meadows at 1:30 on a stormy afternoon.  They called from Paige Meadows at 3:30 to say they were lost.   The PCSO dispatcher who took the call was able to get GPS coordinates from the 911 cell phone contact and they were given to team members.  4 skiers left from Joe Pace's house on Zermatt in Alpine Peaks, 2 skiers were transported to the top of Lakeview in Alpine's troop carrier, and the snowcat left from the top of Silvertip in Talmont.  At 6:30  the MPs reported by cell phone that they could see lights in the woods, and shortly, they were joined by the 4 skiers from Alpine Peaks.  They then rendezvoused with the snowcat and were transported out to Silvertip.

    All team members and the MP's enjoyed dinner at Bridgetender.
