Five out-of-state snowmobilers spent the night up by Freeman Reservoir, in Moffat County Saturday. The group ran out of gas in some difficult terrain. Moffat and Routt County Search and Rescue teams helped out, as did some West Routt firefighters. Then Classic Air Medical found the group at the Lost Park Guard Station. Sunday morning, friends went to get the stuck snowmobilers some gas and helped shuttle them back to North Routt, which is where they started. They all got out at about 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon. The group told Routt County Search and Rescue that they are from out of state but have been coming to California Park for years. There is very little cell coverage there. The Search and Rescue Incident Commander for Routt County says this would have been a good situation for a personal type locator device or Satellite Messenger that they could have activated, to get help in the backcountry.
