Montana Snowmobiler Films His Own Partial Avalanche Burial

A Montana snowmobiler caught his own partial avalanche burial on film at the Sunlight Basin near Taylor Fork. Here is the full breakdown of the incident by The Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center:

“This human triggered avalanche occurred in Sunlight Basin in the southern Madison Range. The slope has an east-northeast aspect and was heavily wind loaded. The slide was triggered from low on the slope and it propagated a few hundred feet uphill. The rider who triggered the slide was not caught, but another rider in the run out zone was partially buried near the toe of the debris. Fortunately nobody was injured in this incident. “screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-9-44-00-am
