Rescue teams set up to bring out stranded snow cat
Carbon county search and rescue member Kyle Kulow unloads a snowmobile while Carbon County Sheriff James Cordova looks on during operations to get a stranded Carbon County snow cat out of a canyon near Star Point. The cat departed with two personnel to do some repairs on Carbon's transmitting station but the snow was so heavy that it ran low on fuel by the time it reached the facility and didn't have enough to get back to where it was launched. The two county employees that traveled in the unit stayed in the transmitting station overnight and then met up with search and rescue crews who brought in extra fuel. The machines were cleared out of the area and down to Morhland by late Saturday afternoon. Involved in the rescue were members of the Carbon County Search and Rescue, as well as Emery County and state of Utah personnel.
