SALT LAKE CITY — A considerable avalanche danger remains in place today for steep slopes that face west through north through east above 8,500 feet. Human-triggered avalanches are likely, according to the Utah Avalanche Center website.
Three skiers were partially buried in Alta but sustained no major injuries.
There were no reported injuries in the American Fork Canyon. Although two snowmobilers were seen riding in the vicinity afterwards, said UAC’s Brett Kobernik. It is assumed that no one was caught in the avalanche.
