Four Finnish men were rescued early Tuesday after they were stranded on a mountain in Niigata Prefecture, police said.

The four men in their 30s and 40s were found in the Myoko mountain range at around 2:15 a.m. None of them were injured, the police said.

The men were involved in an accident while skiing and snowboarding in a backcountry area, they said.

The four set off as part of a group of six but apparently got lost in the mountains on their way back after parting from the other two.

After the four were able to notify the two others that they were stranded, an official of the Akakura Kanko Resort informed the police at around 5:40 p.m. Monday.
