Snowmobile Enthusiasts Enjoy Snow, Cautioned About Avalanche Danger

The Utah snowmobile season is now in full swing - developed trails are being groomed regularly and conditions are great.

See trail grooming reports here.

More snow will fall over much of Utah this weekend, adding to the fun.

Snowmobilers need to pay attention to avalanche danger, particularly if they venture off groomed trails into the backcountry. Our groomed trails are relatively safe because snow conditions are monitored and the trails avoid areas where avalanches are a known hazard.

Avalanches caused 2 deaths in Utah during the past few days, claiming one skier and one snowmobiler. This news article has details.

Monitor this website for the latest avalanche advisories and information.
