Woman Found After 4 Days In A Snow Hole

By

The 21-year old  climber, Gaëlle Cavalié, was rescued over the weekend after spending 4 days in a snow hole.  Cavalié was reported missing by her family when she failed to return from a trip to the Aiguille Verte.

A strong weather system that moved into the area on Tuesday forced Cavalié to seek cover in a snow hole. She was found 4 days later by a helicopter search team. Authorities say that she is lucky to be alive.

Cavalié is now recovering in hospital in Sallanches.

* The Aiguille Verte, which is French for “Green Needle”, is a mountain in the Mont Blanc massif in the French Alps.
