David Lee Gaillard

Park County authorities have identified a snowmobiler and a skier who died in separate avalanches near the Montana-Wyoming line.

Forty-four-year-old David Lee Gaillard was skiing with his wife Saturday southeast of Cooke City when an avalanche occurred around 2 p.m.

Park County Coroner Al Jenkins says Gaillard's wife tried to find her husband but was unsuccessful. She traveled to Cooke City to report the accident and emergency responders recovered the body.
