  • What on earth are people doing with kids out there in the kind of weather we are having? The middle of winter is not the season to go galavanting around unknown territory in harsh weather. Glad they were found. Now go home and stay there!

  • Why did they choose 299 as the route to take back to Chico? Did they not bother to check road and weather conditions? Very irresponsible.

  • I bet they had a huge amount of fun and now have a great memory😆

  • They had probably stopped somewhere to let the kids play in the snow and got stuck.. This weekend was a really nice weekend where weather is concerned. Don’t really think they were being irresponsible. Just probably wanted to have some fun in the snow and got stuck. Accidents happen. Like getting stuck in the snow.. Glad all are OK and headed home now.

  • Who needs chains when you have six youths to push….sounds like fun times for all.

  • I’m wondering where they got stuck in snow. Obviously they got off of the beaten path. Glad this one has a positive ending.

  • Give em a break. Google is sending people on Underwood mtn around 299 slide… Even though they could have gotten through the slide during the night hours with a wait last night.

  • Poor decision on drivers part to take a questionable detour such as Underwood, even if the crew may have said “we can make it, this will be fun”. Glad all are safe.
