Description

• Nearly 100 backcountry ski routes—most located in the central Wasatch
• Written by a ski-obsessed outdoor journalist
• Both day trips and overnights included

Jared Hargrave averages more than 70 ski days a year, which adds up to a ton of local knowledge. He's exactly the ski partner you'd want to show you the best backcountry routes, from those you can hit on a pre-work dawn patrol to multiday overnight trips. Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Routes: Utah includes tours in the central Wasatch as well as the Uintas, Henry Mountains, and more. As with all books in this series, this Utah guide is designed for intermediate to expert skiers or boarders. Each route includes the following elements:

• Detailed route description
• Driving directions from nearest major town or junction
• Trip rating
• Trail distance
• Estimated trip time
• Skill level
• Recommended season
• Avalanche routefinding notes
• Map/permit info
• Starting point elevation
• High point elevation
• Alternate route options

The guide also includes resources for avalanche, weather, and road conditions; land managers relevant to the routes; ski/snow reports; and general safety information, as well as a foreword by one of Utah's premier avalanche experts, Craig Gordon.
