Paraskier injured in Crash South of Bridger Bowl

(null)

(Gallatin County, Mont.). On 1/30/15 a 27 year old Bozeman man was paraskiing (a hybrid sport linking both skiing and paragliding) just north of Saddle Peak on National Forest Service land. On his fifth flight of the day he was flying close to the ground and he caught a wing tip on either a tree or stick causing him to crash. The male injured his knee but was able to ski on one leg to the inbounds terrain of Bridger Bowl. The male was assisted by a recreational skier and two members of the Gallatin County Search and Rescue. ####
