SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Two Blackhawk helicopters crashed near a Utah ski resort at morning during a Utah National Guard training exercise.
No crew members were hurt in the accident near Snowbird ski resort, the National Guard said in a post on Twitter. Both UH-60 helicopters were damaged.
Shortly after the crash near Mineral Basin, the resort tweeted that the area on the back side of the mountain was closed to skiers. A lift and a tram were also closed.
Police are responding to the site about 28 miles (47 kilometers) from Salt Lake City. Sgt. Melody Cutler, a spokeswoman for Unified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake, did not immediately have additional details.
The Utah National Guard is also investigating.
