JACKSON, Wyo. — Yesterday afternoon, Teton County Search and Rescue (TCSAR) volunteers were paged to respond to a snowmobile crash in the Granite Falls area.

The team rescued a woman who had accidentally driven her snowmobile off the edge of the trail and came down with a suspected neck injury.

Due to the nature of the incident, the team dispatched volunteers in the helicopter while others drove to the Granite Creek access, towing snowmobiles and the RZR as backup.

The helicopter team successfully landed near the patient, then packaged and loaded her inside. From there, rescue crews flew with the patient back to Jackson where she was delivered to higher medical care.
