BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A skier who traveled out of the boundaries of the Bogus Basin Ski Area near Boise almost spent a night on the mountain before being spotted by a grooming machine operator.

Thirty-year-old Remington Kendall of Boise managed to alert the snow cat operator by signaling with the light from his cellphone at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday.

He had been reported missing at about 1 p.m. and searchers had called off efforts at 9 p.m. due to darkness.

Authorities say Remington was not injured.

Snow cat operator Jasun Temple tells KBOI-TV (http://bit.ly/13zr2DQ) that he thought he saw a light but then it disappeared. On the next pass through the area he stopped again and spotted Kendall signaling.
