THE AVALANCHE DANGER WILL REMAIN ELEVATED THROUGH THE WEEKEND!!!

Massive natural avalanche viewed by many people in Utah Valley this morning.  This natural avalanche cycle started late Monday night and has produced countless large avalanches into today, Wednesday.   There were six adjacent avalanche paths to this one that also released naturally prior to this one releasing.
