3 Days Later, Missing Snowboarder Found Without Serious Injury

A woman who went missing while snowboarding in Whistler, British Columbia, was found in good condition today after three days lost "in the backcountry," according to the police.

The snowboarder was found by search and rescue teams this afternoon, the Whistler Royal Canadian Mounted Police said.

She was "in cold, but good, condition," police said, and she was taken by helicopter for medical treatment.

The snowboarder, identified as 21-year-old Julie Abrahamsen, had last been seen Wednesday morning on Blackcomb Mountain, according to police.

She was reported missing on Friday, igniting a police and ski patrol search.

Tracks were spotted in the snow by searchers in a helicopter, and when rescuers on the ground followed them, they found the young woman, Whistler RCMP Sgt. Rob Knapton said.

"Searchers followed the trail and at approximately 1:30 p.m. located the missing snowboarder in cold, but good, condition," Knapton said in a statement released today.
