Utah Avalanche Center Video

The Utah Avalanche Center does an excellent job forecasting mountain weather and avalanche hazard in Utah. Their website offers a wealth of information for anyone heading into Utah’s backcountry and beyond.

Their latest video, a retospective look at last season’s record breakingly poor snowpack, is full of incredible avalanche and snowpit footage that illustrates the hazards of a shallow, continental snowpack. It’s long at almost 20-minutes, but for anyone interested in seeing a textbook shallow, faceted snowpack brought to life, it’s a must see.
