SALT LAKE COUNTY, Utah — On Saturday at around 10:30 a.m., an avalanche roared down the slopes at Snowbird Ski Resort.
Several people were caught and carried by the avalanche, but no one was buried. No one sustained any injuries.
Snowbird Ski Patrol conducted searches with beacons, dog teams, Recco and probes. All searches were negative. The teams cleared the site just before 1 p.m.
