Rescuers Suspend Search for Missing Teton Skiers

Jackson, WY – Heavy snow and low visibility forced rescuers on Thursday to suspend their search for two skiers missing since last weekend in Grand Teton National Park.nWalker Pannell Kuhl, 27, of Salt Lake City, Utah, and Gregory Seftick, 31, of Columbia Falls, Mont., had a permit to ski and camp in Garnet Canyon on the east side of the Teton Range. Even though the two originally planned to climb and ski the Grand Teton, rescuers on Wednesday focused their efforts on an avalanche debris field on the north face of Nez Perce Peak.

The two were reported overdue after Kuhl failed to arrive for work in Salt Lake City on Monday morning.
