Search and rescue crews are assisting Apex Mountain Resort staff and RCMP in the search for a missing snowmobiler just outside of the recreational resort area.

Apex Mountain Resort general manager James Shalman says the snowmobiler called through to the office early Saturday evening when he found himself in trouble.

However, poor phone reception prevented staff from getting a name or phone number.

The snowmobiler had gone out by himself, got his snowmobile stuck and was attempting to hike out.

Shalman says although they are unaware of his exact location, the team "has some good leads" and hopes to find him safe.
