Two x-c skiers rescued just before midnight

On Feb. 7, at around 7 p.m., Peter Guy contacted the Vermont State Police in Rockingham and reported that his wife Cindy Guy and her friend, Gail Mann, both in their late 60s from Londonderry, had gone cross-country skiing earlier in the day and had not returned. He reported that at 4:30 p.m., after being in the woods for over two hours, he received a call from Cindy Guy saying that they had gone off the trail and were now lost.

A search of the area was initiated by members of the Weston Fire Department, U.S. Forest Service, Windhall Police Department, Londonerry Technical Rescue, Mt. Holly Fire Department, Londonderry Fire and Rescue, South Londonderry Fire and Rescue, the Vermont Fish and Game and the Vermont State Police. At about midnight the two women were located on a trail in the Green Mountain National Forest. They were escorted out of the woods near Greendale Road in the Town of Weston, treated, and reunited with their group.
