120 people trapped by snow for 5 days at California ski resort now freed

Up to 7 feet (2 m) of snow trapped guests and staff at Montecito Sequoia Lodge in Kings Canyon National Park starting Sunday, U.S. Forest Service spokesman Alicia Embrey said.

Rescuers needed snowmobiles to get to those trapped at the nearly buried  lodge, traveling through more than eight miles of deep snow.

Meanwhile, meteorologists were predicting more snow, high winds and potentially hazardous conditions for the region.
