Does anyone have more information on this situation? It seems like a Troop was winter hiking/camping in the mountains and got themselves in trouble with unexpected weather conditions. I found this reference on a North Carolina TV station web site:

I saw some footage on our local news here in Massachusetts. We're digging out from a blizzard at the moment here in Massachusetts, so I am guessing they were out when that storm came up the coast through Virginia.

Typically, Scout leaders are pretty cautious, particularly with younger, newer Scouts on trips like this. There was a quote from a 12 year old in the story, so this wasn't just experienced, older Scouts, there were new boys in this group too. I'm curious if anyone has seen other stories with more detail on this situation.
