Snowbound Couple Rescued by Kamloops and Nicola Valley Search Teams

A couple was recently rescued by the Kamloops Search and Rescue and Nicola Valley Search and Rescue after being trapped in the snowfall. The incident took place during a heavy snowfall on January 9th.

According to a post on social media, the couple was on a multi-day backcountry trip in Juliet Creek when they got stranded due to their 4×4 vehicle being buried under 50 centimeters of snow. They attempted to drive out but ended up sliding into a creek.

Kamloops Search and Rescue, along with the Nicola Valley Search and Rescue team, successfully rescued the couple using snowmobiles. After the rescue, they were given a ride to Merritt.

This incident highlights the importance of being prepared and cautious when venturing into snowy backcountry areas. The quick response and expertise of the search teams ensured the safety of the stranded couple.
