POV: Skier Gets Caught in Utah Avalanche

Editor's Note: TGR understands the inherent risks with winter backcountry activity and urges anyone going out to have the proper knowledge, equipment, a partner, and a plan. For more information on how to stay safe in the backcountry, check out TGR’s annual Safety Week series.

Earlier this week, a skier was caught in an avalanche on an east-facing slope on Guardsman Pass in the Wasatch. The Utah Avalanche Center posted a POV video from the skier’s helmet cam showing how he tried to air into bowl that ended up triggering a slide. Luckily, his ski was visible and friends were able to dig him out in under a minute.

The avalanche failed on loose, faceted snow beneath a large amount of storm snow. According to the video, the group was carrying proper rescue gear including a beacon, shovel, and probe on each group member, but was able to un-bury their friend using just a visual search and their hands. The skier was uninjured.

While Cooke City might only be a quick five-hour drive from our home base in Jackson Hole, it might as well be on a different planet. When Tim Durtschi and Kai Jones met up with Parkin Costain to put together their segment for it was clear they had stepped into a whole new world. When you arrive in the tiny town on the Montana/Wyoming border, you pretty much leave your truck in one place for the whole trip, and hop aboard a snowmobile to get around. That snow pony will take you pretty much
