Two lost teens, lost in the backcountry, were directed out unharmed

On Jan. 07, at approximately 3:23 p.m., the Vermont State Police responded to Killington Road in the Town of Killington for a Missing Person (Lost Skiers).

Upon arrival it was learned Zachary Ross, age 16 from Vermon, NJ and Jack Lambert, age 16 from Sussex, NJ had intentionally skied off trail and out of bounds while on the Killington Ski Resort causing them to become lost.

For approximately two hours the Killington Ski Patrol and the Killington Fire Department located, tracked, and guided the subjects to Wheelerville Road (Brewers Corner) in the Town of Mendon. Both subjects did not suffer any injuries and denied medical attention.
The Vermont State Police urge all skiers, snowboarders, cross country skiers, and snow enthusiasts to respect Vermont Ski Resorts and abide by the rules and regulations and remain on marked trails at all times.
