Memorial Day weekend in 2020 was a very busy weekend for Portland Mountain Rescue. PMR was already on a standby knowing that people tired of the pandemic lockdown would head to the hills. On Friday, May 22nd a rescue call came in about a lost snowboarder that got stranded in whiteout conditions on Mt Hood. The rescue took over 17 hours, 2 different rescue companies and 15 rescuers from PMR.
Here is the account of what happened both from the rescuee and the rescuer's point of view.
Have a listen.
