A snowmobiler stranded in the Coquihalla Lakes area south of Merritt will be rescued by ground crews this morning.

The man got lost yesterday afternoon when his sled got stuck in a snow bank and he tried to walk out.

He's been maintaining contact with his cell phone.

A high risk of avalanches kept ground crews from going in last night, but the risk has diminished and a helicopter brought in from Comox has been sent home.
