A Snowboarder’s Amazing Tale of Survival – Newsweek Society – MSNBC.com

What a truly inspiration story. The guy is smart too. Reminds me of Survivorman. Well, sort of.

The sun was dropping quickly through the frozen air when Eric LeMarque realized he was lost. An hour earlier, the 34-year-old snowboarder had ducked out of bounds on 11,000-foot Mammoth Mountain in California’s Sierra Nevadas, looking for a “fresh line”—virgin powder. But a wrong turn sent him into the wilderness on the back of the mountain, and now he was cold and wet and stuck. His cell-phone battery was dead. He had no food beyond four pieces of gum and no protection beyond the clothing he wore. He built a fire pit and gathered kindling in hopes the ski patrol would see the smoke, but his soggy matches wouldn’t light. “I thought, God, I’ve got to get out of here,” he recalls. LeMarque strapped on his board again and plunged downhill in the darkness, unknowingly speeding further from safety and rescue every minute.
