Utah Avalanche Center Gearing Up For Season

Dec 3, 2013

Utah is known for its world-class scenery, winter sports and, according to the Utah Avalanche Center, some of the highest avalanche danger in the world. But safety experts say it's easy to mitigate risk by arming yourself with the right information.

Paige Pagnucco, who represents the Friends of the Utah Avalanche Center, sat down with Utah Public Radio to talk about ways to stay on top of the best snow on Earth.

"Our mantra is live to ski another day," said Pagnucco. "Nothing is worth taking extreme risk."
