The things that they did right were remaining calm and keeping an eye on the skiier caught. The dude with the camera may not have had a beacon, but he did have a head on his shoulders and kept the girl from freaking the fuck out which was exactly where she was headed.

Like killclimbz said, the end goal was achiever - the victim was found and rescued alive in short order. Hopefully they'll learn a lot of lessons from this one. The next one might not end up so pleasant.
