Avalanche at Sheep Creek

Submitted by webmaster on Tue, 02/20/2018 - 21:49

On February 20th at 04:06 pm we responded to the report of an adult male buried in an avalanche in the upper bowl of Sheep Creek about 6 miles from the trailhead. The man was snowmobiling with a group of friends in the area. The man was located and freed from the slide, but did not survive. Deputies and Search and Rescue will be working through the night to bring the man’s body out of Sheep Creek. Sheep Creek is located directly east of Palisades Reservoir. Further information will be released pending notification of family.
