Incident 63394 — A group of snowmobilers were rescued near Big Sky, Montanna, after their machines got stuck

When a man from Redstone, MT. and his group became stranded on their snowmobiles at Buck Ridge, the connection they had via their inReach device proved vital. After receiving an SOS from the group's device, search and Rescue coordinators at the IERCC contacted Big Sky Search and Rescue.

"Gallatin County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue in Big Sky and two Canyon Adventure snowmobile guides responded. The snowmobilers were carrying a reliable means of communication, which allowed rescuers to locate them quickly.The men were in good condition and once rescuers helped them get unstuck, they were able to make it safely back to the trailhead.""
