Three men are safe after being rescued from the back country by Search and Rescue RCMP Sergeant Monty Taylor of the Kootenay Boundary Regional Detachment said in a media release Thursday.

Taylor said RCMP became involved in the search after the Salmo detachment received a call Wednesday (January 18) from a Nelson resident saying her boyfriend had activated an emergency distress signal on his SPOT GPS.

Taylor said the trio, in their mid-20’s, had been on a back country ski excursion for the past few days after being dropped off at the Bombi Summit between Salmo and Castlegar.
