WEBER COUNTY, Utah, Jan. 13, 2020 (Gephardt Daily) — Weber County Search & Rescue crews assisted a snowboarder who got lost in the area of Snowbasin Ski Resort late Saturday afternoon.

Crews responded to Beus Canyon to assist the snowboarder, said a Facebook post from Weber County Search & Rescue.

“The snowboarder called Snowbasin for help and gave the Ski Patrol a pretty good idea of where he was,” the post said. “Snowbasin Ski Patrol started searching from the top of the mountain while Search & Rescue started from the bottom.”
