According to the report from Gallatin Media Center, a 23 year old Bozeman woman rolled her snowmobile off of 40 foot cliff, and suffered a substantial leg injury. The rescue occurred near Wapiti Creek in the Taylors Fork Drainage south of Big Sky.

Gallatin Media Center reported that a group of nine rescuers were deployed to locate and assist the injured woman.  The rescuers were able to provide medical care and immobilize the victim so she could be transported using a towable ambulance sled via snowmobile.  She was transported to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital by a waiting medical helicopter.

The Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office reminds backcountry users to use caution when in the backcountry.  Tell people where you are going and when to expect you back.  Enjoy the backcountry with other people when possible and carry a means of communication with you.
