Two skiers caught in avalanche at Utah resort are hospitalized

A woman who was buried by an avalanche Sunday while on a run at Snowbasin Resort in Weber County was rescued and taken to a hospital by helicopter.

The avalanche occurred at 3:10 p.m. in the No Name area, which is in the resort, according to a Snowbasin news release.

Ski Patrol members and people who were nearby dug the skier out of the snow, the release says, and the woman was transported to the hospital in stable condition.

A second skier, who was partially buried, got down the mountain on his own and was taken by ground ambulance to a hospital with moderate injuries, Capt. Oliver Cummings of the Weber Fire District said.
