Memorial Day weekend in 2020 was a very busy weekend for Portland Mountain Rescue. PMR was already on a standby knowing that people tired of the pandemic lockdown would head to the hills.  On Friday, May 22nd a rescue call came in about a  lost snowboarder that got stranded in whiteout conditions on Mt Hood.  The rescue took over 17 hours, 2 different rescue companies and 15 rescuers from PMR. 
Here is the account of what happened both from the rescuee and the rescuer's point of view. 
Have a listen.
