In an effort to guarantee the safety of the public, as well as search and rescue personal during potential avalanche control work, and to preserve any remaining evidence that may be useful in the on going search for the missing persons in the area, Grand Teton National Park will be closing Garnet Canyon to public […]


Dope on a Rope

Randosteve making his first short-haul flight. Well, its’ taken about a whole year, but I finally popped my cherry yesterday with short haul training for Teton Country Search and Rescue, and made my first flight hanging from the bottom of the helicopter.  I was little nervous before my first go around, but once I was […]


When to Call for Help

Ever have someone you know (or maybe even a total stranger) be overdue coming back from the mountains? Scary thought huh? You’re mind instantly thinks the worst has happened and you start thinking of what you could do to help them. You could call Search and Rescue and get the pros involved, or you could […]


New Chat Area on Sidebar

For those that haven’t noticed, I’ve added a ShoutMix chat box in the sidebar. It works just like instant messaging and allows all visitors to correspond with each other…be it to ask about current snow conditions, the weather, gear, route information or any topic for that matter! It updates automatically every minute, so you […]


Broken Leg on Glory

After skiing Albright and Wimpys on Friday, I had just gotten home and was trying to stay motivated to attend the “Steep” showing at the Village when the call-out came for a broken leg on the west side of Glory. We used the heli to shuttle rescuers to a safe LZ above the patient on […]


Rescue Overload

Just want to give a shout out to my SAR buddies on a rescue today for a missing snowmobiler up at Togwotee. Unfortunately I’m working a big sale at the store today and just can’t respond. I guess I’ll run back-up if anything else comes up. Man, recently it seems like TCSAR has been getting […]

Here is a link to the World Ski Mountaineering Championships website. One of the races has 10’000′ of vertical. The members of the team […]


Video: Skiing the Sliver on Nez Perce…and Stuff

I’ve been out all night on a TCSAR call-out in Unskiabowl on the Pass…our second call-out on New Year’s Day. Saved his life…and now I’m going to bed. Might take a couple days to recover. I’m sure most people have heard about all the big slides yesterday and I just hope not to have to […]


Teton County Search and Rescue: A Christmas Rescue

Randosteve and his motorized sleigh provide a pick-up instead of a drop-off for two Wisconsin snowboarders on Christmas day. After a night of tossing and turning, thinking about the people we would be going out to search for, I met my Teton County Search and Rescue teammates and we gathered up some snowmobiles before heading […]


Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all! Well…I had plans for a Merry Christmas…full of deep powder skiing, chilling with RandoKitty and massive amounts of eating…but last night I got a TCSAR call-out for some missing skiers on Togwotee Pass and now I’ll be spending the day looking for them. To tell you the truth…I’m not that psyched […]


TetonAT Videos: More Powder Skiing on Maverick

Had a TCSAR call-out yesterday afternoon. A skier hurt his back on the kickers built at the end of the road on the south side of The Pass. No comments on that one. We built an anchor out of skis, made a 3:1 and hauled him up to the road on a sked. The snowmobiles […]



I was going to go up into Garnet Canyon today to do some skiing, but after the rain above 10,000′ yesterday and rumors of 5′ slabs being triggered at the ski area are making me have second thoughts. Shucks!!!!!! SKINNY SKIS AVALANCHE AWARENESS NIGHT Once again it is time for Skinny Ski’s Annual Avalanche Awareness […]


Teton County Search and Rescue: The Long Haul to Short Haul

The TCSAR crew getting in some classrooom time at the Sheriff’s Office. As a volunteer member of Teton County Search and Rescue, one of the new tools and techniques I am training for is for the ability to do a short-haul from a helicopter. This is basically when your are suspended beneath the helicopter with […]


TCSAR: Murphy Sends Helicopter Training

Murphy anxiously awaits his first rid in the helicopter. I had helicopter training for TCSAR this weekend. I was hoping it was going to be canceled due to the weather. With the 5″ of new snow on Teton Pass, I knew things would be skiing nice and I wanted to get Julia out on her […]


TCSAR: More on the Rescue

I gotta tell you, you never know what you are in for when you get a call-out for Teton County Search and Rescue. When one came for two injured hunters, deep in the Gros Ventre this Tuesday evening, I decided I would respond, even though it was the second time in a week I was […]
