Father and Son Billed for Backcountry Rescue
Should they be forced to pay the price?
By Drew McCarthy
A $2,500 fine is to be charged and then donated to the North Shore Search and Rescue to cover the amount the resort spent on personnel and equipment used in the search and rescue of a father and son. The two snowboarded out of bounds at
Vancouver's Grouse Mountain ski area last weekend and are now being asked to pay for their rescue.
