A snowmobiler was rescued Sunday after he reported that he may have broken his leg while riding at Buck Ridge.

After Gallatin County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue in Big Sky received the call, the GPS coordinates placed the man in the McAtee Basin, allowing rescuers to locate him quickly.

Life Flight flew to his location and with the help of other snowmobilers, the man was loaded into the helicopter and flown to medical care.
