Detailed Accident Report
Submitted By: AAA
Place: West Fork of Duchesne, western Uintas
Summary: 3 snowmobilers (on foot) caught, 2 buried and killed
* Very few details at this point, but this is a very sad accident. Early reports tell that 4 youngsters during a break from snowmobiling walked over to a short but steep creek bank topped with a small cornice that collapsed and triggered an avalanche. Two boys were buried for about 30 minutes.
