66 year old Wayne Schuh, of Nine Mile Falls, found himself lost while skiing by himself Saturday morning at the Mount Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park. He called a friend to describe where he was but search and rescue teams were unable to find him. The search had to be suspended overnight because of bad weather so Wayne spend a very cold and wet night by himself in the woods.  He was treated for minor injuries but walked out on his own. 

How frustrating it must have been to have a phone and talk to your buddy but you can’t describe where you are.  I’m sure he’ll excersise more caution next time….
