A 32 year-old Teton Valley man suffered a leg injury when he was caught in an avalanche while skiing in the area of Jackson Peak Sunday. Scott Dixon was skiing with three companions when the four apparently triggered the slide on the west face of Jackson Peak. Responding to a 911 call, members of Teton County Search and Rescue were transported to the scene aboard the county’s contract helicopter and rendered initial treatment to Dixon. Then, as it was becoming dark, the EIRMC helicopter, which has authority to fly at night, was dispatched to the scene and transported Dixon to St. John’s Medical Center for Treatment. This marks the second avalanche injury in a little over a week in Teton County. 29 year-old Laura Kruscheski also suffered a leg injury when an avalanche ran on Togwotee Pass Friday, November first.
