GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK — Grand Teton National Park rangers have found the bodies of two missing skiers who were buried in an avalanche on Ranger Peak.
Chris Onufer and Steve Romeo of Jackson were reported overdue late Wednesday. On Thursday rangers picked up signals from the pair's avalanche beacons in a large avalanche debris field.
Park officials say the two were caught sometime Wednesday in the slide, which started near the summit of 11,355-foot Ranger Peak and ran to the base of the peak.
Rangers using probe poles found the skiers' bodies.
Onufer was the tram maintenance manager at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and also a volunteer firefighter. Romeo was a former employee for the resort.
The avalanche danger was listed as moderate on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Bridger-Teton National Forest avalanche center.
