Big Sky, Montana (CNN) - An avalanche in Montana killed a man riding a snowmobile. It happened at Gallatin national forest, outside of Butte.
First responders weren't able to recover the man's body.
They planned to come back today and fly into the remote area of portal creek.
That's where three people were snowmobiling when two of them were caught in an avalanche.
One man escaped with only minor injuries.
The victim was said to be a man in his forties who was buried by the slide.
