April Fools!

We've been posting a lot about rescue crews saving lost skiers and riders, but this one has to take the cake. After a 24-year old snowboarder went unaccounted for at Heavenly last night, 75 search and rescue personnel, including helicopters, were called in to search for the missing man. After searching throughout the night through wind and snow, the snowboarder was found hungover in the hotel room of "an acquaintance" at a South Lake Tahoe casino in the morning. No word how many beers, or knee caps, rescue crews demanded from the snowboarder for their $40,000 effort. [KTVN]
