Sublette County Tip Top Search and Rescue along with Sublette County Emergency Management have successfully recovered the body of a skier who was killed in an accident Sunday. Elizabeth "Liza" Gray Benson died of injuries sustained from an avalanche that swept her into a timbered area during a back-country ski trip west of Bondurant, Wyoming.

The recovery effort in the Cliff Creek/Cabin Creek area began early Monday morning and lasted throughout the day, concluding at approximately 5:30 p.m. Fresh snow Sunday and Monday has increased avalanche danger on the western slopes of the Continental Divide.
