Craig Patterson above Shingle Mill Canyon, Provo Area Mountains
Please keep UDOT avalanche forecaster Craig Patterson and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Craig died yesterday in an apparent avalanche accident while conducting work-related duties on Kessler Peak. Craig was beloved member of a community of dedicated individuals that enable all of us to recreate in the Wasatch Mountains. My thoughts and prayers are with Craig, his family, and all of his friends in Utah's snow-safety community.
