    Swedish family rescued after skiing out of bounds and spending night on mountain

    KAMLOOPS, B.C. - A Swedish man and his three sons who skied out of bounds have been rescued after they spent the night on Revelstoke Mountain.

    RCMP Cpl. Thomas Blakney says the father and his children aged 11, 15 and 17 trespassed a roped area at the Revelstoke Resort on Wednesday.

    A helicopter airlifted them out of the area on Thursday morning.

    Blakney says an ambulance was waiting for the family but released them because there weren't any medical concerns.

    A search and rescue helicopter dropped supplies for them on Wednesday but had to pull out because of bad weather and the approaching darkness.

    Earlier this week, a military helicopter was needed to rescue a snowboarder who spent two days in the wilderness near West Vancouver after he went out of bounds at the Cypress Mountain resort. (CHNL)
