Avalanche Strikes 6 US Army Soldiers at Smugglers Notch in Vermont

An avalanche has hit Vermont's tallest peak, injuring six U.S. Army soldiers training in mountain warfare. Their injuries were not considered life-threatening.

He said ambulances from local emergency response teams helped the soldiers off the mountain and transported five of them to the hospital.

Rivard said six soldiers were training as part of the Army Mountain Warfare School in Easy Gully near Smugglers' Notch.

He did not know how severely the soldiers were injured.

It was the second avalanche reported in the Mount Mansfield area in recent days. "It's several separate independent layers right now", Veliko said.

"The program is built to teach Soldiers and commanders operational endurance and self-sufficiency", the site says.

Smugglers' Notch reportedly received almost two feet of snow over the last 24 hours - and was expected to get more. The Army website says the school provides tactical and technical training for mountain warfare and cold weather operations.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, a longtime supporter of the Vermont National Guard, tweeted in response to a WPTZ-TV report on Wednesday's avalanche.
