VAIL, Colorado –Authorities are attempting to reach three snowboarders Thursday night who are stuck in deep snow in the backcountry above Vail’s Intermountain neighborhood.

Two of the snowboarders are familiar with the terrain, having ridden a similar route without any problems on Wednesday, said Eagle County Sheriff’s Dep. Gianni Robinson.

A third snowboarder is not quite sure where he is, Robinson said.

“All three are in good condition and are expert boarders,” he said.
