Henderson Mountain Avalanche Fatality

Two snowmobilers were riding north of Cooke City, MT along the Daisy Pass Road under Henderson Mountain just past the turn to the Miller Road. One rode through a gap in the trees to a gully that opened to a 37 degree slope above him. His partner remained on the road. He remotely triggered an avalanche and was buried about 5 feet deep, 100 feet from the road. The avalanche danger was rated HIGH on all slopes and an Avalanche Warning had been issued that day.
