Snowmobilers Survive Night in Snow
Cheyenne, WY – Two snowmobilers from Texas are safe after spending a night lost in the Gros Ventre Range in northwest Wyoming.
Authorities say the 47-year-old man and 39-year-old woman from Albany, Texas, suffered minor frostbite and the earliest stages of hypothermia.
Doug Meyer of Teton County Search and Rescue says the pair were found by a commercial snowmobile tour about 11 a.m. Thursday.
Rescuers were called out Wednesday afternoon when the snowmobilers didn't return from an excursion when expected. The couple shared one snowmobile.
Meyer says the couple got lost when a heavy snowstorm Wednesday afternoon left them disoriented. They were found just before
another snowstorm started Thursday.
