Two Utah National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters collided near a major ski resort in a training mishap Tuesday morning, according to the Utah National Guard.

According to Jared Jones, chief warrant officer 5 with the Utah National Guard, no crew members or skiers were harmed at the Snowbird ski resort.

“Everyone is safe,” stated Jones. “Everyone’s safety was a godsend.”

The collision happened at Snowbird’s Mineral Basin region, “about 150 yards off Snowbird proper,” according to Jones.

According to Snowbird’s website, the resort, located around 30 miles from Salt Lake City, has the capacity to transport more than 17,000 skiers and snowboarders upward every hour through its several lifts.
