Five search dogs and about 20 professional rescue workers looked for about two hours at the Deer Valley Resort Saturday for any victims of an avalanche in an off-limits area at about 11:30 a.m.
Probes and electronic equipment to detect any presence of avalanche beacons were also used, according to Erin Grady, communications manager for Deer Valley Resort.
"We did not have any injuries, we did not have anyone buried and we did not have any missing person reports," Grady said about the decision to call off the search at 1:30 p.m.
The slide occurred in what is known as the Daily Chutes area, near chutes six and seven. A ski patrol worker noticed a set of tracks going into the slide area, which prompted the search. It's now believed the person who made those tracks may have caused the slide but was able to escape.
Grady said the slide was about 150 feet long and 100 feet wide and in an area that's usually closed until about March.
