Two men were stuck spending Sunday night on Cypress Mountain after getting stuck in an out-of-bounds area.

Now that both are safe, North Shore Search and Rescue have released GoPro footage of the rescue in a blog post.

The skiers, who became lost Sunday afternoon, initially indicated they were on Black Mountain, on the other side of Cypress Bowl.

Search and rescue members had intermittent cell contact with the two 40 year old men while on the mountain, and we were able to get a location from their phone putting them at 700M in Tony Baker Gully.

Avalanche conditions, as rated by Avalanche Canada, were high, and search members had to postpone rescuing the pair until Monday morning. They texted the subjects to let them to know to hunker down for the night and provided survival information to them.

Early Monday morning, search crews used a HEC (human external cargo) long line helicopter rescue.

“NSR is extremely happy that the subjects were uninjured, were able to survive the very cold night, and were not hit by an avalanche while they were waiting. Earlier in the day the two skiers had been hit by an avalanche, but luckily survived it and were uninjured,” the blog post read.
