Skier Loses Loaded Handgun at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Finds it at Lost-And-Found

According to the Jackson Hole News & Guide, a Wyoming skier visiting Jackson Hole Mountain Resort dropped his loaded 9 mm handgun out of his shoulder harness during a hard crash, didn't notice the gun was missing, and continued skiing while two off-duty resort employees found the weapon on the Dick's Ditch run. The employees carried the gun down to resort security, where it was later reunited with its owner when he called in to report it missing.

Although the resort discourages skiing or riding at the resort with a loaded gun–"We recommend different kinds of safety equipment" were the words from JHMR risk and safety manager Josh Bishop–Wyoming law does not make it illegal to do so, and the resort has no rules against it, so those who are packing are legally allowed to slay it in more ones than one in Jackson Hole.

Has Rise To The Top started skiing at Jackson?

Might want to give this one a quick proof read. Crazy Story though!

    Thanks for noting! Think I cleared them up (hopefully?)...

      I think @IanWithTheDreadlocks may have been referring to “...slay it in more ones than one…”  You probably meant more WAYS than one.  Cheers!
