Stranded Snowmobilers Rescued In North Country

Two snowmobilers were rescued early Sunday morning in the North Country after their machines bogged down in deep snow, leaving them stranded, according to a news release from New Hampshire Fish and Game.

A 911 cellular call asking for help came about 10:30 Saturday night, said Conservation Office Chris Egan.

The callers couldn’t be reached in a return call, but it appeared the call came from an area near Pittsburg. Groomers from local clubs were notified and Egan headed to the area on his snowmobile.

He reported finding the two women just after midnight, walking down a trail near Cowen Hill. They were tired and thirsty but properly equipped for the weather, he said.
