Hikers rescued in Pyrenees
Gendarmes in Luchon intervened this Monday to rescue a couple of hikers buried under snow, one of whom suffered a broken ankle. The intervention took place on the descent of the Pic du Cagire (1912m).
Despite it “snowing like in winter,” a team of five gendarmes went to the location. The victim was taken down slopes where 20cm (8 inches) of fresh snow had accumulated.
Winter is still hanging on at Ontario’s largest ski and snowboard destination.
Although all other ski resorts in Ontario have called it quits on the season, Blue Mountain Resort is planning on turning the chairs at the Silver Bullet Express Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week.
Located just over an hour outside of Toronto, Blue Mountain has confirmed it will surpass its latest ski season on record, celebrating it’s last day on the slopes on Sunday, April 29th.
