Avalanche danger high through most of Utah

PARK CITY, Utah — A high danger avalanche warning is currently in place throughout most of Utah. 

The Utah Avalanche Center is warning residents to avoid avalanche terrain, including below steep terrain. 

“Very dangerous avalanche conditions exist. Natural and human triggered avalanches are very likely,” said the Utah Avalanche Center website. “Avoid all avalanche terrain. This includes underneath steep terrain. Avalanches will run fast and far today.”

This avalanche warning went into effect at 6 a.m. this morning and will last until 6 a.m. on Wednesday, April 5. It affects the Wasatch Range, Bear River Range, and Uinta Mountains. 

“Recent heavy accumulations of snow and drifting have created widespread areas of unstable snow,” said the Utah Avalanche Center website. “Long running natural and human triggered avalanches are likely. People should avoid being in backcountry avalanche terrain (off of and out from under slopes steeper than 30°) and stay clear of avalanche runouts.”
