Two 16-year-old snowboarders became lost in an out-of-bounds area near Whitewater Ski Resort, BC earlier this week, having to brave a night of sub-zero temperatures and snowfall in the Canadian Rockies. Newser.com reports that the two, realizing they were lost with nightfall approaching, made a make-shift shelter and started a fire to keep warm. One of the snowboarders had homework in his backpack that they used to keep the fire going through the night.
