A 78-year-old man who had been snowmobiling on Togwotee Pass about a mile southwest of Togwotee Mountain Lodge became the subject of a multi-agency rescue Saturday when he lost control of his snow machine and plummeted down a steep 40-foot embankment from the trail.  Teton County Search and RescuePresident Tim Ciocarlan says a call for the search and rescue helicopter was cancelled when a search and rescue team member who was in Buffalo Valley responded with personnel from Togwotee Mountain Guides, Grand Teton National Park, Bridger-Teton National Forest and Jackson Hole Fire/EMS and through coordinated efforts, raised the victim back to the trail with ropes and a litter.  The unidentified man was taken by ambulance to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment of a back injury.  No other details of the incident were immediately available.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
