The Steamboat Pilot and Today reports that authorities reached the pair Saturday morning. Routt County Search and Rescue incident commander Kristia Check-Hill say the search began Friday evening after the snowmobilers reported they were stuck in a meadow.
Rescuers from Routt County found the pair about 7:30 a.m. Saturday. Temperatures had dipped to 17 degrees Friday night.
The pair was able to use gasoline from a snowmobile to start a fire, but keep the fire going was difficult because of a lack of wood.
The snowmobilers were not identified.
