WHITEFISH- Flathead avalanche officials reported a partial avalanche burial Monday in the Northern Whitefish Range. 

According to a post on their Facebook page, a snowmobiler remotely triggered a persistent slab that failed on weak facets near the ground. The snowmobile rider was buried up to his neck. 

Flathead Avalanche Center staff visited the slide over the weekend and will post new details as soon as their investigation is complete.
