Cooke City MT: Man Buried in Avalanche Catches it on His Camera (video within)


It can even happen to the most experienced snowmobiler. This time of year the dreaded ‘avalanche’ is to be greatly feared. And Cooke City, Mt. seems to be a heavy avalanche area as we’ve seen in the past.

BILLINGS -” Getting out in the Montana terrain — it’s something Anthony Kluesner does all the time.

The 22-year-old snowmobiler was born and raised in Lima, Montana, but now lives in Meeteetse, Wyoming.

But a late-February trip to Mount Abundance near Cooke City now has him feeling lucky to be alive.

“I had some friends come out from another state. Their favorite places to ride are in Cooke City. So we went up there for two days, Saturday and Sunday. That morning started off great,” Kluesner said. “I see this big old wide-open side hill that was untouched. I mean that was a snowmobiler’s dream right there to go play on it. And we tore up that whole side hill. Just had a ball.”
