Columbia Valley Pioneer Staff

A group of overdue hikers was rescued from Bugaboo Provincial Park on June. 18.

Columbia Valley Search and Rescue (CVSAR) reported they were called out to help find “overdue hikers” in the park.

A team of CVSAR members responded with the help of Coldstream Helicopters to locate the hikers who had spent the night in the wilderness after getting “lost in a whiteout.” No injuries were reported.

Search officials are reminding people that cool and wet spring weather have returned to the mountains, bringing new snow and challenging travel conditions. 

Before heading out remember the three T’s – trip planning, training and taking the essentials.
