A father and son who had to be rescued after snowboarding out of bounds at a North Vancouver resort last month have been told to cover the expenses.

North Shore Search and Rescue sent a six-person team into a "high risk situation" on Dec. 29 to retrieve the two.

The two got stuck in a gully where the avalanche risk was high, making things dangerous for their rescuers, who had to get the two up a collapsing vertical slope.

Chris Dagenais, a Grouse Mountain resort spokesman, said every year people have to be rescued while skiing in an out-of-bounds area and that hopefully sending a bill would add another deterrent.

The exact amount of the invoice wasn't disclosed, but Dagenais said it would be enough cover the cost of the rescue.
