A huge avalanche on Mount Timpanogos in Utah was filmed by guests at Sundance Resort yesterday. According to the Utah Avalanche Center, the slide was on the “middle finger” on Timpanogos in the Provo area mountains.

Avalanche debris stopped in the dry lakes area adjacent to the ski resort, but the dust cloud carried hundreds of yards toward the guests.

“Today there was a natural avalanche that started on Mount Timpanogos and carried down the mountain into an area outside our ski area boundaries. Footage shows the dust/wind cloud reaching guests who were watching but no one was hurt as deposition area never reached our boundaries.

We remained open all day and hope you will join us tomorrow for more amazing skiing and boarding. We are very grateful for our amazing ski patrol who work so hard to ensure our mountain is safe.”

Utah is amid a record-breaking deep season, and resorts have broken all-time snowfall records. Yesterday, a snowmobiler was killed in an avalanche in Utah after being buried beneath 22 feet of snow and debris.
