Denver (AP)_A search for two Albuquerque snowboarders missing since Saturday near the Wolf Creek Ski Area is set to resume today, but officials worry that snowy weather could hamper the search.

A storm that moved into the area last night is expected to dump nearly two feet of snow in the area where searchers are looking for 27 year olds Michael George and Kyle Kerschen.

The search area has already received more than four feet of snow in the past four days.

George's mother, Laura George, said the men were unprepared for cold nights in the open, and that they probably didn't have much food or water.
