Avalanche Safety and a Survivor's Story on Monday's Access Utah

On Monday's program we discuss avalanches in Utah. We hear the story of with two avalanche survivors. Elisabeth Malloy Adam Morrey were recently out in the Mill Creek Canyon area where they were hit by a 700-foot avalanche. Malloy was completely buried where Morrey was only partially. He was able to extricate himself and rescue Malloy. They talk about how they managed to survived. We also talk about safety, preparation and "what to do if" with Toby Weed of the Utah Avalanche Center.
