BREAKING: Slide on Teton Pass buries woman north of Mt Glory

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – A 28-year-old woman was on a snow machine at the base of the Great White Hump, north of Mt. Glory when she was fully buried by an avalanche this afternoon, said Teton County Sheriff Matt Carr. Another member of her party remotely triggered two avalanches, and one of them came down on the woman and buried her and her snow machine.

Carr said her party was not able to find a beacon signal but they were able to find her with a probe strike and dig her out before SAR arrived on scene.

TCSAR provided medical treatment and transported her back to the hangar. The woman was alert, conscious and breathing. She is being assessed for injuries at this time.

A very large natural avalanche also released yesterday around 11:15am on the east face of Buck Mountain at an elevation of 11,500 feet.
