Skies are clear, ain't it a shame.*
Mountain temps are in the upper teens to low 20s.
Winds are west-northwesterly, blowing 10-15mph with speeds twice that at 11,000'.
In 1976, Dave Hanscom and Alexis Kelner published Wasatch Tours
, a backcountry skiing guidebook "intended for a rather limited population of skiers who practiced their sport mostly in the proximity of the Central Wasatch". They later published two complementary books that expanded into terrain outside of the central Wasatch. Each are a gem (the books as well) and the reader quickly grasps the passion and love of skiing that each brought to these wonderful books. In their books, they recommend - when the avalanche conditions are suitable - a SuperTour
- a long outing among the high peaks and covering lots of ground. I hope you've gotten yours. (pc:McLean)
