Missing S.F. skiers found in Hell Hole, in good condition

Two San Francisco skiers missing since Saturday in the Lake Tahoe area were found this morning and are now in “good condition” at an area hospital, according to the hospital's emergency room manager.

“I can confirm that the two skiers are here, and they are in good condition and being treated (in the emergency room),” said Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital Emergency Room Manager Bebe Pedicini.

Pedicini would not elaborate on their condition, adding that both skiers wanted simply to let people know that they were “in good condition.”

Patrick Frost, 35, and Christopher Gerwig, 32, both of San Francisco, who were last seen in a bar at the Alpine Meadows Ski Area lodge at about 11:30 a.m. Saturday, were found by a sheriff's department helicopter at 10:29 a.m. in Hell Hole Reservoir, according to sheriff's department Communications Supervisor Kelly Hernandez.

They were then flown to the hospital, about 80 miles away, according to Hernandez.
