    By LINDSAY WHITEHURST, Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A skier caught in an avalanche that killed four people in Utah survived by clinging to a tree through the onslaught of rushing snow and later helped save two people, a forecaster investigating the slide said Tuesday. The avalanche on Saturday initially buried six skiers from two separate groups. When the snow stopped moving, a surviving skier let go of the tree and was joined by another skier from his group in the search for others, forecaster Drew Hardesty with the U.S. Forest Service Utah Avalanche Center said.

Two men and two women in their 20s died in the snow, making the...
