The Oliver Osoyoos Search and Rescue team (OOSAR) typically undertakes two to three winter searches annually since their inception in 1975. Every year, at least one of these searches involves lost or injured snowmobilers.
OOSAR Search Manager Rob Selsing states, “Typically, it is males we end up searching for ranging in age from young adult to middle age. They seem to take more chances, generally are less prepared, and have the more powerful equipment.”
Selsing says the group is made up of women and men, presently with 30 members but looking for 10 more.
