JACKSON, Wyo. — A large avalanche was triggered on the south face of Taylor Mountain this afternoon.
A Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center report says a witness saw the slide at around 2:46 p.m.
Search and Rescue performed a “reconnaissance” mission and determined no one was buried, says Teton County Sheriff Matt Carr.
The avalanche is reported to be about 96 inches deep.
BT Avalanche has not confirmed whether the slide was human triggered, but several witnesses say they saw ski tracks at the top that never came out, suggesting it was. Avalanche danger was “considerable” today and predicted “small to very large avalanches” were “likely to be human triggered on steep slopes on a variety of aspects at all elevations.”
