WEST YELLOWSTONE - A Costa Rican woman was injured when she crashed a snowmobile near Two Top Mountain over the weekend.
At around 2 p.m. Sunday, the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office and the West Yellowstone Division of Gallatin County Search and Rescue responded to a backcountry rescue for a 26-year-old woman whose snowmobile left the trail and struck a tree, according to a news release.
The woman suffered a broken arm and complained of pain in her neck, back and knees.
Search and rescue members provided first aid on scene. They then packaged the woman in a rescue warming bag to keep her warm during the transit out of the back country. She was transported by a specialized rescue sled towed behind a search and rescue snow machine. Rescuers transferred the female to a waiting Hebgen Basin Fire Department ambulance.
