NorCal Couple Rescued by Helicopter After Being Trapped by Sierra Snow for Nearly Two Months

The historic snowfall of the Sierra was difficult to maneuver for a lot of people. Roadways throughout the region were closed for long periods of time due to extreme snowfall and high-elevation residents were stuck inside for weeks at a time.

One couple staying in their Sierra cabin were stuck for nearly two months due to heavy snowfall and downed trees. With nearby roads impossible to drive on, a helicopter mission was organized by the California Highway Patrol to rescue the two, who had begun to run out of supplies.

The California Highway Patrol’s Valley Division Air operations performed the rescue mission in Sierra County for the couple and their dog who had been stuck in the cabin since December 6. CHP posted a video of the rescue on social media:

The helicopter was able to land near the cabin and extract the residents from the area. Their identity was never revealed.
