"He was climbing up a small gully and a team above him triggered a small avalanche," Doug Chabot, director of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center, said. "He wasn't swinging the tools when it happened, it was just an avalanche. A small pocket of snow pulled out and caught him. It hit him and took him off the cliff, down the ice."
Lacelle, 54, died of blunt-force trauma, Gallatin County Deputy Coroner Dan Springer said. The accident occurred near Grotto Falls between 9 and 10 a.m.
