Two Women Injured In Head-On Snowmobile Crash

Posted: Updated:
BIG SKY, Mont. -

Two people suffered multiple injures Friday morning in a snowmobile accident in the backcountry near Big Sky.

The Gallatin County Sheriff's Department said a 68-year-old woman and 32-year-old woman collided head-on about six miles west of the Doe Creek Trailhead south of Big Sky around 11 a.m.

They say both were going at a rapid speed.

The 32-year-old was able to exit the backcountry with the people she was with.

The 63-year-old was taken to Bozeman Deaconess Hospital from the Buck Ridge Trailhead.

The sheriff's department says cold weather and high winds added hazards to the snowmobilers.

Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin reminds people to carry proper emergency equipment.
