Backcountry skier dies in Grand Teton fall


JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A backcountry skier died in a fall in Grand Teton National Park. Park officials say 27-year-old Radcliff Spencer, of Jackson, died Sunday trying to ski Apocalypse Couloir in Death Canyon in the southern end of the park. A climber saw the fall in the steep, narrow mountainside gully. Search and rescue workers who arrived weren’t able to resuscitate Spencer. A helicopter carried four others who were with Spencer out of the canyon.
