JHMR Press Release:
Incident this Morning at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort˙

(Jackson Hole, Wyoming, December 29, 2008) At approximately 9:30 am this morning, after JHMR Ski Patrol had completed one avalanche hazard reduction route and were getting ready to conduct another, the Headwall slid naturally from the southeast aspect above the Bridger Restaurant.

This incident took place before this area of the mountain had been opened to the public. A search for potential victims took place and everyone has been accounted for.

This incident is under full investigation and a more detailed report will be released at 4:00pm MST.

At this time JHMR will remain closed until further notice.

That's what makes it all the more impressive. I love the sign on the door "Do Not Exit".
