A snowboarder who went missing after cutting off the trail on a mountain near Vancouver was found alive on Tuesday by a helicopter crew. Sebastien Boucher, 33, was riding on Cypress Mountain on Sunday when he became lost in the trees. A friend alerted local search and rescue after receiving a text from Boucher requesting help. North Shore Rescue manager Bruce Moffat said that Boucher started jumping and waving his arms when he spotted the aircraft. "He's in amazing shape for what he's gone through," Moffat said.
