Ski patrollers responded to an avalanche at Snowbird, UT, on Saturday. The slide occurred on the Road to Provo trail off the top of the Little Cloud lift. The trail was reportedly open. A number of people were caught and carried by the skier-triggered avalanche, but nobody was buried or injured, reports KSL.

Snowbird has seen 127″ of snow this season, including 13″ in the previous 48 hours. Avalanche danger for Saturday was rated CONSIDERABLE on all mid and upper-elevation steep slopes. Two days ago, the resort was all but closed. Only the Chickadee lift was running due to high winds ahead of the predicted heavy snowfall.
If you see or trigger an avalanche adjacent to a ski area, please notify them. Two avalanches were triggered in the past two days where ski patrol and helicopters were called in because nobody reported them, and they had to assume someone could be buried.
