Have you ever experienced a whiteout?  Imagine 2 feet visibility where you can not even see the steps you've just made, blowing ice, temperatures dropping drastically. Now add, that you are in this whiteout as the last team up, close to the summit of Mt Hood with extreme angles below you, with the  danger of your next wondering step possibly taking you into a crevasse or down into a fumarole. How do you save yourself? Luckily for our next rescuees, Portland Mountain Rescue's team members are always ready to face a challenge even if it sometimes comes to a non-in person rescue.
