JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) -- A skier missing in Grand Teton National Park since Monday has been found alive.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reports that the 31-year-old Mike Syverson of Telluride, Colorado, was found about 8 a.m. Wednesday and flown out about two hours later.

The National Park Service says Syverson was treated for "cold-related conditions" at St. John's Medical Center in Jackson.

Jenny Lake District Ranger Scott Guenther says the man left the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort boundaries on Monday with a friend. The other man was able to return to the resort early Tuesday.
