Aspen rescuers come to aid of dehydrated, exhausted Avon hiker

By Real Vail

An Avon man was assisted by Mountain Rescue Aspen on Sunday after becoming severely dehydrated and exhausted while hiking the Ute Trail in Pitkin County.

Rick Lamitie, of Avon, was the subject of a 911 call by a female hiking companion at about 11:25 a.m. The woman reported that Lamitie was unable to continue up or down the trail and that he was "very pale, shaking and sweating profusely."

At the request of the Pitkin County Sheriff’s Office, Mountain Rescue Aspen deployed two team members into the field. Shortly after deploying, they made contact with Lamitie and he was escorted down the trail under his own power.

"The Sheriff’s Office and Mountain Rescue Aspen remind the public to stay very well hydrated and well nourished while in the backcountry, whether on short day hikes or on longer extended hikes," officials said in a press release.
