Local killed in avalanche
Jackson Hole, Wyoming – Officials at Grand Teton National Park have identified the a Jackson man killed in an avalanche as Jarad Spackman, age 40.
Spackman was skiing with an unidentified companion near Apocalypse Couloir around 10:30 a.m. on Friday when they were caught in the avalanche near the fork of the couloir. Spackman was swept by the slide nearly 1,000 feet and partially buried, face down.
The companion immediately began a search, recovered Spackman and administered CPR. He eventually used his cell phone to call GTNP rangers.
Park rangers, with the help of TC Search and Rescue, organized a rescue team. A helicopter was flown to the backcountry location around 1:15 p.m. where they met the skiing companion who was able to move Spackman with him. Spackman’s body was flown out and his partner skied out with the rescuers arriving at Park headquarters in the late afternoon.
Avalanche danger was reported to be moderate with the advisory, “Pockets of wind slab up to 20 inches in depth.”
This is the second avalanche fatality in Grand Teton National park this year. On January 27 a skier died on Survey Peak in the Teton Range.
