GREAT FALLS -- The Kardashians are reality-TV stars, but their collective stars aren't shining too brightly in parts of Montana right now. 

Sisters Kim and Khloe Kardashian and one other person -- who has not yet been identified -- made headlines over the weekend when a car they were in slid off the southwest of Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport. 

Captain Mark Wilfore of the Montana Highway Patrol said that no one was injured and the car did not slide into oncoming traffic. He added that no report was filed because the incident was not considered a crash and there were no injuries, damage, or citations issued. 

"We responded to that slide-off along with a number of other slide-offs at the same time," he said. "It was a busy morning. We had gotten some snow this morning, last evening and again this morning, so the roads were pretty slick." 

When asked to confirm reports that Kardashian's daughter, North West, and Kylie Jenner also were passengers, Wilfore said he had not received that information from the responding officer. 

He could not state who was driving. 

Shortly after the incident, Kim Kardashian posted on Twitter: "Thank you God for watching over us and keeping us safe." 

So what were the Kardashians doing in Montana? Initial reports indicated that they were in the Treasure State to do some skiiing, but apparently their visit originally was supposed to involve a dog-sled adventure. 

Jason Matthews, the owner of Yellowstone Dog Sled Adventures, posted on Facebook on Sunday that last week he was contacted by an "advance team" representing the Kardashians. 

They told him that they wanted to schedule a dog sled adventure for the Kardashians reality show, and after Matthews told them how much it would cost, they instead offered "exposure" and "trade." 

Matthews wrote: "We exchanged several phone calls and emails and scheduled the day- but then plans were abruptly cancelled when I would not give them our services for free, YES- for FREE!!! They make 60 Million dollars a season from the tv show, but wouldn't pay for a dog sled tour they booked. They wanted 50 dogs, 5 guides, etc...to work for free. Glad we didn't do it!"

He referred to the incident as "Montana Karmic Justice." 

On Monday, Matthews told Ed Kemmick at the Last, Best News website, "“I think it's been better for business that I'm not associated with them."
