The possibility for avalanches in Utah's backcountry is higher than it's been in several years, and authorities want Utahns to be safe.
The risk level for all mountain ranges is again at a high, the first time that condition has been in place for two days in a row in many years, said Bruce Tremper, director of the Forest Service Utah Avalanche Center.
"We were very, very lucky to get through Sunday without a fatality. It was sunny and that got people out, and they had powder fever," Tremper said. "But we were able to get the word out that it was very, very dangerous, and most people stayed inside the resort boundaries, and everyone came back alive."
