34-year-old Lee Kidd, a resort employee at Grand Targhee Resort, was reported missing after failing to show up to work after telling friends he wanted to go backcountry snowboarding according to postregister.com.
Kidd’s season pass was scanned at the base of the Dreamcatcher lift at Grand Targhee at 10:45 a.m. Friday. Kidd’s supervisor alerted Grand Targhee ski patrol at 4:10p.m. after he was uncharacteristically two hours late for his shift.
Search efforts have been confined to the ground due to winter storms but helicopters are on the ready once the weather improves.Sheriff’s Office detectives are also involved in the case because it has not been established if Kidd is in the backcountry or if his disappearance happened elsewhere.
Kidd was last seen at the resort wearing a brown jacket, black pants, a black helmet, goggles with red, green and yellow on them and a tan, black and green snowboard.
