Although early season pow is tempting, there’s plenty of reasons to wait for more snowfall. One of those reasons became painfully clear this past Saturday when a Jackson local sustained a broken back while skiing off Teton Pass.
According to the JH News and Guide, that incident was just the second rescue the Wyoming mountain pass saw in less than 3 days. The first happened on Thursday when an elderly man (72) got tired while skiing Edelweiss Bowl. He ultimately called in a rescue at the bottom of the run and was safely transported back to the trailhead.
If you’re heading out this early season, make sure to stay safe and especially– stay light on them thar sticks ya hear!
