Stranded Hikers Rescued on Mount Hosmer

Fernie Search and Rescue successfully helped two stranded hikers off of Mount Hosmer on Monday.

Tasked with responding to the call, a helicopter rescue team made up of two Class D Fixed Line Technicians (CDFL) were sent out to assess the best options for the hiker’s rescue.

“Finding themselves far off route, with both in steep and loose terrain, they made the right choice to call for help, as their options were limited,” said Fernie Search and Rescue.

“The subjects were extricated one at a time by long line and flown to the Hartley Lake recreation site.”
