Major Avalanches Kill Three

Avalanches Kill Three and Leave Others Injured - WA, WY, UT, CO

As winter turns to spring, avalanches have become a major threat. Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and Washington have had some major avalanches through this transition. These incidences have left 3 dead and multiple injured.

Most of the avalanches occurred in out-of-bounds areas.  A lot of groups were prepared by checking daytime highs and purposely creating avalanches before venturing to potentially dangerous areas, but with all of the snow that has fallen late this winter, it is difficult to predict when an avalanche will occur.
