Cypress Mountain plans to present Sebastien Boucher with an estimated $10,000 bill to cover the costs the mountain of the search, which ended Tuesday night.
“The subject and Cypress are negotiating the bill,” team leader Tim Jones said in a blog Thursday on the North Shore Rescue (NSR) website.
“We have nothing to do with it and will not, I repeat, will not receive a donation from Cypress ... NSR has a clear policy against fines or charges.”
