Rescue of man buried in McCall avalanche caught on camera

A snowmobiler was rescued by Two Bear Air Rescue Crew after being buried in the avalanche in McCall.

Friends of the snowmobiler called for help after a cornice broke away, sweeping the snowmobiler down a slope after he stopped at the top of a ridge.

Valley County Sheriff dispatched a Life Flight helicopter out of Boise and notified Search and Rescue, but terrain made it impossible to land so they requested help from Two Bear Air Rescue to extract the man.

Two Bear Air Rescue Crew used a Rescue Specialist to save the man. His current condition is unknown.
