JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton County Search and Rescue (TCSAR) was busy yesterday helping an injured snowmobiler on Togwotee Pass.

“Yesterday, our team of volunteers was called out to help a woman who’d been injured in a snowmobile crash up on Togwotee,” TCSAR said on social media. “Given the nature and extent of her injuries, the team responded with the helicopter as well as a ground crew on snowmobiles.”

After receiving the patient’s location, the helicopter flew directly to the site. The patient was then flown to St. John’s Hospital for treatment, while the helicopter returned to the accident site to pick up the remaining SAR members and everyone returned to the hangar.

The incident required 18 team members and was completed in 4 hours, 45 minutes.

“Thanks to the Togwotee guides who provided the initial response,” TCSAR said. “We greatly appreciate the partnership from everyone who helped out.”
