A BUSY period for Terrace Search and Rescue was made even busier when two young men, ages 24 and 21, became stranded on top of Copper Mountain east of Terrace Oct. 5.

The two men, at least one dressed only in shorts, had underestimated the climb, and were unprepared for the stormy weather that brought snow to the high elevation.

“They had cell service and called for help. It was starting to get dark, the weather was brutal, and reality was they were not equipped to hike back out in the dark,” said RCMP Const. Angela Rabut.

RCMP responded through the provincial emergency program, and local SAR members were dispatched by helicopter to retrieve the two men, both of whom escaped uninjured, said police.
