Volunteers Install New Beacon Transceiver at Monte Cristo
MONTE CRISTO — Winter is in full swing and the mountains have been immersed in deep snow. This has been great news for snowmobilers, who are loving the several feet of snow being dumped each storm. However, with our beloved powder comes an increase in avalanche danger.
There has been a substantial amount of avalanche activity in the Utah mountain ranges, making safety a top priority for outdoor lovers. Through a joint venture with the Golden Spike Snowmobile Association, a new beacon transceiver has been installed by the Club at the Monte Cristo Trailhead up Ogden Canyon.
It’s also important to “Know Before You Go” about the dangers of avalanches and how to rescue someone that is caught in an avalanche.
A special thanks to Jeff Eddings and Dennis Kowalewski from the Golden Spike Snowmobile Association for installing the transceiver.
