Boulder County authorities were contacted to rescue a 21-year-old woman Wednesday night after she slipped in some snow and fell down a gully on Flagstaff Road.
According to Kelly Lucy, Boulder County Sheriff’s Office emergency services unit supervisor, the woman was with a friend who was able to call for help after she slipped while they were walking near the Baseline Road picnic area in Boulder. Per Boulder County scanner traffic, authorities responded to the call around 8 p.m.
Lucy said the woman was not seriously injured, but was shaken. She was able to walk out of the gully on her own. Lucy said he was not sure how far the woman slid.
The Boulder Fire-Rescue, Mountain View Fire Department, Rocky Mountain Rescue and the city’s Open Space and Mountain Parks responded to the call, alongside the sheriff’s office.
