Skier seriously injured in JHMR sidecountry

UPDATE: 3/28

Teton Village, WY— An accident in Cody Bowl, Bridger-Teton territory just south of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort ski boundary, has left local pro skier Bryce Newcomb in critical condition. Newcomb suffered a serious head injury after a cornice that he was standing on gave way. Newcomb is currently listed in Critical Condition at the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.

We would like to extend our thoughts, and prayers to Newcombs family and friends. We hope for a full and speedy recovery.

JHMR ski patrol responded to a call at around 10:30 am reporting an injured skier at the bottom of No Shadows. The skier was believed to be standing on a cornice in between Four Shadows and No Shadows when the snow gave way, causing the skier to fall the length of the run. Patrollers were on the scene by 10:58 am and called Teton County Search and Rescue to assist with a helicopter evacuation. The skier is now being treated in the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center.
