March 7, 2019

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Another lost skier has been rescued in Grand Teton National Park in northwest Wyoming.

Jackson Hole Mountain Resort spokeswoman Anna Cole says resort ski patrollers rescued the man after he became disoriented and ended up lost in Granite Canyon on Wednesday afternoon.

Rescuers used a signal from the man’s cellphone to locate him and a team reached him about 9:40 p.m. He was not injured.

They made it back to Teton Village about 1:15 a.m. Thursday.

This is the seventh skier or snowboarder to get stuck or lost in Granite Canyon this winter.
