Skier off Alpine meadows

Submitted by Russ Viehmann

Went on a call for a wayward Englishman off Wolverine saddle around afternoon.  He made it all the way to Big Springs and then he stopped and realized he was OB.  He started hiking back up and ran into some food and water that patrol had left for him.  We met him about 1000' down from the saddle, finding perfect corn most the way.  He was grinnning ear to ear when we met him and making good progress on his hike back out.  We all made the saddle without much difficulty.  Nice to go out when its sunny and warm, blue skies and good spring snow.
