    WY - Two expert back country skiers die in Grand Teton avalanche

    Steve Romeo, Chris Onufer Dead: Skiers Perish In Grand Teton National Park Avalanche (huffpost.com)
    CODY, Wyo., March 8 (Reuters) - The bodies of two well-known local skiers who died in a back country avalanche in the mountains of Grand Teton National park have been recovered by a search and rescue team, a park spokeswoman said on Thursday.

    The remains of Steve Romeo and Chris Onufer were found one day after the pair failed to return as expected from a trip to Ranger Peak in the northern Teton Range, park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs said.

    Both men were expert back country skiers who lived in Jackson, Wyoming, and were well-known in the Jackson area.

    Romeo ran a website, TetonAT.com, devoted to back country skiing and Ski Mountaineering in Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park.

    A search was begun for the two men at dawn on Thursday after their vehicle was found on Wednesday night in a trailhead parking lot in Grand Teton National Park.

    They may have been experts at skiing, but nobody is better/smarter than Mother Nature.
