Team members (and visiting New York Forest Ranger/MRA member Jim Giglinto) rode the Sensation quad lift to the top of Big Spruce and snowshoed in to the patient's location between Big Spruce Peak and Smuggler's Notch. The patient was packaged in a litter and lowered over 1000' to Smuggler's Notch Road (see photos). From there the subject was transported by snowmobile to Stowe Rescue for transport by ambulance
