A missing skier from Revelstoke Mountain Resort was found safely more than 12 hours after he was reported missing. Joseph Stelcasky, 41, was located by Revelstoke Search and Rescue shortly before 9 a.m. Monday out of bounds of the Resort.
Revelstoke RCMP say Stelcasky was in fine condition, but cold.
He had last been seen Sunday afternoon before attempting to ski the Brown Shorts run.
Revelstoke RCMP had looked for him overnight, but Search and Rescue went looking with a helicopter at first light Monday.
The Revelstoke RCMP would like to remind backcountry and out-of-bounds skiers to ski with others, be prepared to spend the night, have a cell phone and working battery, carry a flashlight, extra food and water and to tell others where they’re going.
