The Skyline picked up a couple of inches of snow out of last nights minor weather disturbance. Riding conditions remain good to excellent. Don't let this cloud your judgment for avalanche safety!!
We'll see increasing southwest wind today with high temperatures around 20 degrees and increasing clouds this afternoon. Another weather impulse will move through tonight bringing perhaps 3 to 5 inches of new snow by Monday morning. The long term weather outlook looks active with weather models advertising lots of snow coming later this week.
There was another avalanche fatality involving a snowmobiler in the Uintas yesterday. A 49 year old male was out with his 14 year old son and another friend. The father triggered the avalanche while hill climbing. He was wearing an avalanche beacon but his friend was not well versed in how to use them making things difficult to perform a rescue. We are not sure if a fast extrication would've been enough to save him as it sounds like there was quite a bit of trauma involved in the large amount of debris. ACCIDENT REPORT HERE
