TWO National Guard Blackhawk helicopters have crashed on a Utah ski trail.

The collision occurred at around 9.30 am on Tuesday at the resort in Little Cottonwood Canyon, in the Mineral Basin area of Snowbird, 30 miles from Salt Lake City.

The Utah National Guard confirmed that two of their UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters were involved in the crash.

According to the UNG, the choppers went down during a winter mountain training exercise near the mineral basin.

“As they landed the snow kicked up and the aircraft probably lost sight of the ground,” NG officials said.

The National Guard confirmed no crew members were injured in the accident, but the choppers were damaged.

Video footage from the scene showed two choppers down on the snowy trail several feet apart.

A skier took to Twitter to describe the collision: "We saw a backcountry helicopter crash, so sad.
