A skier was reported missing by his girlfriend in Mexico as he had not checked in with her.  The girlfriend indicated he was with a group staying at the Thunder Meadows backcountry ski cabin.  The response was delayed until first light when Fernie SAR sent a team via helicopter to the Thunder Meadows cabin where they located the group having breakfast.  The group did have a Delorme personal locator beacon and had sent a check in message the previous night but for some reason it had not made it to the girlfriend in Mexico.
