Rescue crews help hikers in snowy Smugglers Notch - WCAX

It may be spring down here, but it’s still winter up there - as two Smugglers Notch hikers stuck in ice and snow discovered.

"Crews say they helped two hikers who found themselves in steep, snowy and icy conditions on the Sterling Pond Trail in Smugglers' Notch. We're told crews had to use a set of ropes and harnesses to get the hikers out of their dangerous locations. They want to remind you that while it may be warm in the valley, the weather is different in higher elevations. Rescue crews are still recommending micro spikes and light crampons when hiking above 1800 feet.”
