Officials say four teenage snowboarders have been found alive and well after spending the night in the woods near the Sugarloaf ski area in Maine.
Officials say a group of three snowboarders plus another boarder who was on his own went out of bounds on the back side of the mountain late Sunday afternoon. An 18-year-old was found about around 9:30 a.m. Monday. Three others, ages 15, 18 and 19, were located a short time later.
The search was hampered by high winds and more than 5 feet of new snow that has fallen since Wednesday.
