1 killed after avalanche buries 3 people in Montana.

The Park County Sheriff’s Office said two of the snowmobilers were able to dig themselves out Saturday from the slide north of Cooke City on the Montana-Wyoming line. Officials said Sunday that continuing snowfall and strong winds have made the snowpack unstable and natural and human-triggered snow slides are likely. The warnings cover the mountains near Cooke City, the Madison Range, the Gallatin Range, the Lionhead area near West Yellowstone and the Bridger Range.
