Follow UACwasatch on Twitter. Twitter is very effective for obtaining information especially via your cell phone. The forecasters at the UAC experimented with Twitter during the 2009-2010 winter season and found that Twitter was very effective for broadcasting real time conditions FROM the backcountry to people IN the backcountry.
The way it works: Forecasters in the field can send out info from their cell phones about an avalanche that they've just observed or heard about. The public can receive this info in text messages on their cell phones while they are out in the backcountry as well. The forecaster on duty in the UAC office also can send out information about avalanches that he/she may learn about from in the office. You can also send "Tweets" which everyone can see, just include #utavy in your Tweet.
