Man Rescued After Snowmobile Crash

It happened Saturday, in the Cabin Creek drainage, which is north of West Yellowstone in remote, rugged terrain where experienced snowmobiles ride.

Personnel from the West Yellowstone division of Sheriff’s Search Rescue, the U.S. Forest Service, the Hebgen Basin Fire Department, and Deputies responded and assisted with the rescue. Summit Air Ambulance attempted to reach the scene by helicopter but was turned away due to the heavy cloud cover and snowy conditions.

 

Rescuers responded on snowmobiles and when they arrived on scene they found a 25-year-old male from Bismarck, North Dakota who had a broken femur on his right leg, which he received when he fell backwards off his snowmobile.

He was taken out of the backcountry by the rescue team using a specialized rescue sled that is towed by a snowmobile. He was then taken to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital.

Sheriff Gootkin reminds all back country users to know the terrain, know their limits and to always take a partner.
