Stampede Pass Avalanche Rescue Video

Here’s some incredible footage of a snowmobiler caught, then rescued in an avalanche up at Stampede Pass this weekend, Caught on camera: Rescue of buried snowmobiler. Stampede Pass is just east of Snoqualmie Pass.

Here’s a comment from the guy buried on YouTube:

The guy on the white sled rode the avalanche down and knew right where to look for me. These guys saved my ass and got me out fast. Seemed like a whole lot longer when in the snow but thanks for the quick work guys. Looking forward to the next ride with you beacon and all.:)

Stay safe out there folks! Consult NWAC’s avalanche forecast, don’t go out if it isn’t safe, travel with a buddy, carry a beacon, shovel and probe.
