Skiers rescued by helicopter after going missing overnight
The ski-tourers dug a hole in the snow in order to shelter in the Cairngorms.
Two missing skiers have been rescued after they were missing overnight in the Cairngorms.
Mountain rescue teams were alerted on Tuesday night after the ski-tourers failed to return to their base.
The coastguard's Rescue 951 helicopter was involved in the search on the Cairngorm plateau before being stood down overnight.
As the search resumed on Wednesday morning, the pair were located by helicopter and airlifted to safety.
Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team leader Willie Anderson said the skiers had dug a hole in the snow in order to shelter overnight.
