Spring storms have brought fresh snow to the central Wasatch Mountains and there is plenty of soft snow to be found at the upper elevations with good timing. It's hard to decide whether to backcountry ski, mountain bike, or climb. Or maybe all three in the same day for the energetic outdoor enthusiast. Can't beat this view from the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon with a storm casting shadows up canyon and bluebird in the Salt Lake Valley.
My friend Chris breaking trail towards the summit of Patsy Marley. This was one of the rare moments of our tour when visibility was better than pea soup. Our intention was to session lines in Wolverine Cirque. Visibility was poor, winds were high and we decided to leave it for another day. Discretion is the better part of valor...anyone?
