JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton County Search and Rescue received a call at 7:23 p.m. yesterday to assist an injured snowmobiler on the Continental Divide Trail east of Muskrat Flats.
The man, who was in a group of four, had compressed a large bump in the trail. The impact broke his sled’s handlebars, injuring him and rendering the sled inoperable. He and his group were discovered by another party who, in the absence of cell service, used an inReach locator beacon to contact emergency dispatch.
TCSAR formed two response teams on snowmobiles plus a communications team in an incident vehicle. Upon reaching the patient via snowmobile, the rescue team found him conscious but complaining of back and head injuries.
The team was able to transport the patient to the trailhead where an ambulance was waiting by 10:40 p.m. The man was evaluated at St. John’s Health, where he was treated and discharged.
