In the article “Skiers caught in blizzard spend two days in snow cave near Aspen” by Glenwood Springs Post-Independent staff, explains how a couple got lost skiing near Aspen when the blizzard blew into the Rocky Mountains Friday March 26, 2010. The skiers were lucky and went into instinct mode creating a cave to stay as warm as possible and get out of the snow. Once the skiers were able to send a text message out they did alerting a brother that they were lost and they needed help. On Saturday rescuers tried to find them till visibility was zero; on Sunday the skiers were found and rescued able to meet up with the group they had planned to. Stories like these make the world realize how important it is to know survival techniques, the situations, and what is needed to do.
