Sunday TCSAR rescue auto Angle Mountain

Teton County Search and Rescue responds Sunday to two men stuck in a wilderness area on Angle Mountain. Three days later, crews returned to rescue the same men who got stuck again while trying to recover their sleds.

On Sunday, Teton County Search and Rescue dispatched its helicopter to rescue two Michigan men who had illegally ridden their snowmobiles into a clearly marked wilderness area and gotten stuck on the backside of Angle Mountain.

Then, Search and Rescue crews were called back Wednesday to rescue the same men, who had been permitted by the Bridger-Teton National Forest to snowshoe in and help a helicopter they had privately contracted retrieve their sleds.
