Over the weekend in Summit County, two separate avalanches were reported, each time with a recreationalist buried in the slide.
There were different outcomes, though. A slide in the Chalk Creek area resulted in the death of a snowmobiler. Another rider was uninjured after an avalanche near Woodland.
The Summit County Sheriff’s Office reported that at about 1:30 Saturday afternoon, they got a call about an avalanche near the East Fork of Chalk Creek, which resulted in the death of a central-Utah man.
He was identified as 49-year-old Jason Lyman, from Mona.
