SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On January 7, 2013, at approximately 4:49pm, State Police in Rutland received a 911 call from Brandon Helmrich who advised he and four other skiers had intentionally skied out of bounds off a trail in Killington and were lost in the woods.

Helmrich was able to maintain periodic contact with the Vermont State Police and Ski Patrol. After obtaining the skier’s GPS coordinates from the cellular telephone used to call 911, the skiers were advised to walk back up the trail they’d come down. After directing the skier’s where to go, Killington Ski Patrol located all five skiers and escorted them out of the woods. None of the skiers sustained any injuries.

The Vermont State Police highly urge skiers to abide by ski resort rules and to stay on marked trails, avoiding out of bound areas while on the slopes
