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.

  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
