Two skiers were safe Wednesday after walking away from an avalanche near a Montana ski resort, authorities said.
The men, ages 32 and 42, were skiing outside of designated skiing areas north of Snowbowl Resort near Missoula when they were caught in the avalanche, said Missoula Country Sheriff Mike McMeekin.
The men were able to dig themselves out of the snow and walk to a radio tower site where they were able to contact emergency services, according to McMeekin. One of the men suffered a minor head injury.

@Fred: I want what you're having. My coffee is much too weak compared to it.
@danny d: You forgot to tell your little friend Evangeline about "waisting" as opposed to wasting.
They were skiing outside the designated area i think thier heads were both damaged before the avelanche but whatever. Thank God they're both ok.
@Veritas:Hi. Always a good story when no one dies. Hard to go to the sad threads ain't it?
Knuckle heads + Severe winter conditions + skiing out of bounds = STUPID !!! God gave us a brain but only 10% of the people (Population) seem to use it .....
