Description: Occasionally the subject's general location is known but additional resources (e.g. medical or 10 avalanche searchers) are needed on the scene that is only reachable by snowmobile. Snowmobilers may provide the needed skills or may shuttle in non-snowmobilers that have the skills. The terrain may be mountainous and hazardous.
