Avalanche danger high in Northern Utah, officials say

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Utah Avalanche Center is warning about dangerous conditions in northern portions of the state. Officials say heavy snowfall and wind will overload a fragile and weak snowpack to create hazardous conditions in the coming days. The center says those without expert avalanche training and skills should avoid traveling in mountainous backcountry areas. The center says the Wasatch Front and the western Uintas have considerable danger, which means natural avalanches are possible and human-triggered slides are likely. — On the Net: http://www.UtahAvalancheCenter.org
