Snowboarder rescued from Slide Mountain
RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - UPDATE 4:30 P.M. The Washoe Co. Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that a snowboarder has been rescued for the out-of-bounds area outside the Mt. Rose Ski Area on Slide Mountain.
A Washoe County Sheriff’s Office RAVEN helicopter and the Sheriff’s Office HASTY Search and Rescue Team battled poor visibility and winds to reach the stranded snowboarder.
The Sheriff’s Office says they received a report that the snowboarder went out of bounds on the Slide Mountain side of the resort and could not get back to the groomed area. He reportedly was not injured.
That part of Slide Mountain is under extreme avalanche danger with all the fresh snow received this week.
