KAMLOOPS, British Columbia, Dec. 29 (UPI) -- Two Canadian sisters and a woman from the United States were safe and warm Sunday after spending a cold night in British Columbia mountains, rescuers said.

The three had been skiing in an out-of-bounds area of the Sun Peaks Resort and were unable to make their way back before nightfall on Friday.

A resort spokeswoman told the CBC the two sisters were found late that night. The American from Washington state, who had been skiing on her own, was found by a helicopter and flown to safety Saturday.

All three were reported in good shape. Their names were not released.
