Avalanche danger remains “considerable” on all slopes in the Cooke City area following some dangerous activity over the past six days, according to the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center.
The area saw one snowmobiler buried by a slide on Tuesday in an avalanche near Lulu Pass. On Saturday a large slide on Scotch Bonnet Mountain was triggered from hundreds of feet away. Later, a snowmobiler was partially buried on Henderson Mountain in an avalanche he triggered and was unable to outrun, according to a GNFAC report.
The “considerable” avalanche danger rating also applies to the southern Madison and southern Gallatin Ranges and Lionhead area near West Yellowstone.
