On Monday May 25th Peter Scherfig, a 40 year resident of Big Sky, was tragically injured when he ran into a grizzly bear. He was mountain biking on a popular trail in the Spanish Peaks development area. He sustained serious injuries to his face and neck and is now recovering from facial reconstruction surgeries at OHSU in Portland. He is expected to make a full or near full recovery.
Peter and his family have been a vital part of our community. His two children grew up here in Big Sky and in Bozeman. He taught for years at Ophir school and went on to open a learning academy in Bozeman.
Katie would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of support her family has received from the Big Sky community from and all over the world. It has been such a blessing.
