A woman who was injured while snowmobiling near Seeley Lake was rescued on Saturday evening.

The Missoula County Sheriff's Office reported that the 26-year-old woman who was injured after falling off her snowmobile in the Lake Dinah area is safe.

She was treated on scene for possible hypothermia and once back to the trailhead, chose not be transported by ambulance for other possible injuries.

Seeley-Swan Search and Rescue and Lewis and Clark County Search and Rescue -- which was doing training in the area -- responded to the call.

Two Bear Air was called to the scene as well, but was forced to turn back due to inclement weather.
