These are the type of stats that we hope will continue... well forever. For the first time in 26 years, there have been zero avalanche fatalities in Utah. This comes from a variety of factors, including increased education, better equipment, and persistent storms that decreased the danger over the winter. “Of course we've had lots of snow. We had lots of avalanches. We've even had a couple of close calls. But at the end of the day, everybody came out on top. We are super stoked,” said Craig Gordon, an avalanche forecaster for the U.S. Forest Service Utah Avalanche Center.
With snow still in the mountains, let's keep this trend going throughout the entire ski community.
