Snowboarders Found in Yosemite National Park
Three snowboarders, missing since Monday afternoon, were located by helicopter spotters at around 2:00pm near the South Fork of the Merced River. All three were responsive and walked to the helicopter on their own. Their condition will be further assessed as they come out.
A total of over 65 Search and Rescue personnel from Yosemite National Park and Mariposa County have been searching the area since yesterday.

Descending from Yosemite Valley, the Merced River becomes a continuous cascade in a narrow gorge littered by massive boulders. Dropping 2,000 feet in 14 miles, canyon walls rise steeply from the river and have many seasonal waterfalls cascading down to the river.
