We have a super shitty weaklayer right now and if you don't know avy skills I wouldn't get out in it. They closed Alta yesterday a little early to uphill since there were I think 4 slides inbounds with one resulting in a broken femur. We need a big storm to flush this layer.
Snowbird and Alta are not closed to traffic early and late season, but they HAVE to be treated like BC. There are tons of people stomping around without gear which is silly, but this isn't the thread to talk about that.
This is a tragedy for sure and vibes to his wife and kids.
Here is the preliminary report from Kowboy.
Accident: Gad Valley 11/13/2011 | Utah Avalanche Center
