TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. — This afternoon, Jan. 12, Teton County Search and Rescue (TCSAR) responded to an injured skier outside of the southern boundary of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) in the area of Four Pines.

According to Teton County Sheriff and TCSAR volunteer Matt Carr, the 26-year-old male complained of injuries to his hip and back after hitting a jump or cliff and landing on a rock.

JHMR Ski Patrol initially responded to the incident and called TCSAR.

“Given the location and where he was, we sent the short-haul team out and short-hauled him to the Teton Village LZ [landing zone] and he was ambulanced to St. John’s.”

JHMR was unavailable for comment at the time of publishing.
