Man Rescued from Teton Pass Avalanche

Written by on February 7, 2019

Authorities say a sheriff’s deputy rescued a driver after a car was buried in an avalanche on Teton Pass.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports the car was caught in the slide Wednesday evening, and the pass was closed in both directions. No injuries were reported.

Stephanie Harsha, a spokeswoman for the Wyoming Department of Transportation, says the slide was likely triggered naturally. It was about 4 feet deep and about 30 feet wide.
