Earlier today, Gallatin County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue responded to a backcountry rescue. Two snowmobilers, aged 68 and a 32, collided head-on six miles west of the Doe Creek trailhead south of Big Sky. Both riders suffered multiple injuries, with other snowmobilers providing first aid.

The Sheriff's office would like to remind snowmobile riders to carry proper emergency equipment and remind you to ride within your skill level and paying attention to hazards, including other riders.
