6 May 2013 ~ Friends Hut

A 45 y/o man was evacuated from the Friends Hut during the night after he was unable to ski out due to an ankle injury sustained the previous day. The 12 K evacuation was hampered by soft snow, patchy mud, and stream crossings. Cooler night temperatures were advantageous in firming the snow pack for the evacuation team. Twelve members responded. The subject was released to friends in town at approximately 0500.
