Amusing & Unusual: Hikers rescued after being stranded in Golan Heights “snow blizzard”

Being Canadian myself I’m left wondering what kind of ‘blizzard’ / ‘whiteout’ conditions we’re talking about here, how much snow fell up there in the Golan 5 cm? lol…

Rescue teams of the Golan regional council managed to rescue eight hikers stranded in a snow blizzard near Mount Bental in the Golan Heights.

The hikers climbed up the mountain, but had trouble climbing down due to the rough weather conditions.


Glad everyone’s all right, got a kick out of the dramatic headlines Ynet slapped to this baby : )

I sincerely hope no one was buried up to the ‘Big Toe’ in this blizzard.
