Missing snowboarder found on Mount Washington

A 28-year-old Comox Valley snowboarder was safely found early Saturday morning after spending the night on Mount Washington.

The man, who was wearing white pants, a white helmet and a white jacket boarded off a trail around noon Friday on the north west side of the mountain.

Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue Group began their search Friday, but were restricted because of darkness and a high avalanche hazard in the area.

A Cormorant helicopter from 19 Wing Comox was also dispatched to the area.

The border — who did not want to be identified — was transported by ambulance to St. Joseph's General Hospital as a precaution.
