Great job!! Without a doubt saved his life, another night in the conditions would probably have done him in. Three private fixed wing and a helicopter plus a lot of snowmachiners, makes me really proud to live in a place that so many folks would volunteer to help someone out.
No Trooper or Coast Guard aviation support which is a bummer cause they have FLIR. Next time we will have to add "TV Camera Crew' to SAR checklist, so they will come down and help. Cause it sure seems like, No TV time, no Help from those two.
