Rescuers from the Pitkin County Sheriff's office pulled a 42-year-old snowboarder out of deep snow in an out-of-bounds area near Snowmass.

A news release said deputies and the Snowmass Ski Patroll found the man, whose name was not released, in a deep ravine early Sunday morning.

He called for help on a cell phone when he became separated from a companion Saturday.

The rescuers had to trigger several avalanches to reach him
