A man killed Sunday in a Sanpete County avalanche became the second victim to die over the weekend in a snowslide.
Four backcountry snowmobilers were riding near Huntington Reservoir when the slide buried Clint Conover, of Ferron, according to a Sanpete County Sheriff's Office news release.
The news release describes the group as "highly experienced" they were trained in avalanche rescue and brought beacons, probes and shovels with them. The three other people found Conover, dug him out from under 6 feet to 8 feet of snow and began CPR, the release adds. They also called for help.
