4 backcountry skiers found near Aspen

ASPEN — Four skiers who went on a trip to a backcountry hut near Aspen have been found.

Authorities say the men were found just before noon today.

The Aspen Times reports that rescuers launched a search for the skiers Tuesday evening.

The men had planned to return from the backcountry on Monday. But authorities thought they may have remained in the hut on Monday because of a snowstorm and skied out on Tuesday instead.

They left a note on their vehicle asking them to call when they returned. When they failed to, the search was launched.
