LONGMIRE, WA (www.incnow.tv) - Two snowboarders stranded on Mount Rainier since Sunday have been rescued.

Tuesday morning, rescuers reached the two men, Derek Tyndall and Thomas Dale. By the afternoon the two made their way down the mountain where they are now safe and warm again.

Tyndall and Dale say they found a snow cave on their first night that they used for shelter. The second night they built their own. They also shared some Ritz Crackers and found a small stream for drinking water, but they say their positive attitude and having each other was all they needed to survive.
