    PARK CITY -- A man snowshoeing in Park City on Thursday evening was caught by an avalanche and killed, police said.

    The victim, who was from out of state, was hiking with another man when the avalanche occurred, police Chief Lloyd Evans said. The other man, a Park City resident, escaped.

    Police were called about 6:30 p.m. and residents near the undeveloped area in Upper Daly Canyon went with the survivor to search for the victim.

    He was found under about 6 feet of snow and was dead on arrival at a hospital about 8:40 p.m., Evans said.

    Names have not yet been released.

    The avalanche occurred as a storm moved through Utah bringing heavy rain and snow.
