Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, December 28, 2013 2:35 PM EST
A second person has died in an avalanche in Wyoming's Jackson area.
The slide occurred less than two hours after 29-year-old Jackson resident Michael Kazanjy was killed by an avalanche while he was skiing a slope known as Pucker Face.
The Bridger-Teton National Forest Avalanche Center says Anderson was with three other snowmobilers when he was buried by the slide.
Authorities say his companions found him with the help of his avalanche beacon and dug him out within 10 minutes but could not revive him.
The avalanche was about 350 yards long, but the depth wasn't immediately available.
