JACKSON, Wyo. — Before noon on Thursday, March 11, Teton County Search and Rescue (TCSAR) was called to respond to a skier with a broken leg in the backcountry south of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR).
The skier sustained the fracture after jumping the exit cliff at the bottom of Central Couloir, a steep line on Cody Peak. After witnessing the incident, the Jackson Hole Ski Patrol requested helicopter assistance and sent a team to the patient in Cody Bowl.
TCSAR responded with a helicopter short-haul team, and lifted the injured skier to an ambulance in Teton Village.
“Thanks to the partnership with the @jacksoholeskipatrol for their help in bringing this rescue to a safe completion,” TCSAR said on social media.
