Visitor Found Dead Along Yellowstone Ski Trail

The body of a Montana man was discovered this past weekend along a ski trail in Yellowstone National Park.

Snowshoers called 911 around noon on Saturday, after spotting what they thought was a frozen human body in the snow along a groomed ski trail in the northern part of the park.

Park rangers responded to the Frog Rock Trailhead, which is south of the Grand Loop Road, eight and a half miles east of Mammoth Hot Springs.

They discovered the body of 52 year old Merik Morgan from Belgrade, Mont., not far from the ski trail along the Blacktail Plateau Drive.

While initial indications are that the man succumbed to hypothermia, the incident remains under investigation.
