(Teton Village, Wyo.) - Buckrail reader Tim Dykema submitted this photo diagram of the "Why Not" area where the three skiers fell off of a cliff this morning
According to Dykema, this photo shows the cliff area adjacent to the "Why
Not" Couloir taken on a sunny day on January 19.
"Went to inspect area this afternoon. Red area is where I saw ski tracks
that were too far skier's right. Orange area was where some extraction
efforts happened. Blue is the route through the main couloir. I am guessing
that the eyewitness or those who went down the rocks/cliffs will be able to
pinpoint the exact route of fall," said Dykema.
