Here’s warning from the Friends of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center for backcountry skiers who think triggering an avalanche will never happen to them. Be careful out there, and pay very close attention to your surroundings, and check out if the area you plan to head to has any cautions or warnings. This was posted on Wednesday, February 27th:
Yesterday afternoon a skier was killed in a slide on the west side of the Bridger Range at the top of Truman Gulch on a run called St. Lawrence. The skier was travelling solo and a separate party of two, skinning uphill, witnessed him triggering the slide and getting swept downhill. They responded swiftly, got a beacon signal and saw his hand sticking out of the snow. The dug him up and did CPR, but the skier never revived. He was carried approximately 1,000 feet vertical down a steep slope causing fatal trauma. The skier was a well known and loved local and we are deeply saddened to report this tragic accident. In the coming days we will release a full accident report, but unfortunately, because of the dangerous avalanche conditions we cannot investigate the site.
