Two girls who became lost while snowboarding at a Tahoe ski resort were found cold but safe late Thursday.

The sheriff’s office said rescuer discovered a pair of small footprints in deep snow near an out-of-bounds lookout chair shortly after 9 p.m.

They followed the tracks and found the girls two hours later near a residential area.

Authorities said the youngest child suffered mild hypothermia and both were taken to a hospital for checkups.
