For the last three years Utah has seemed to be on the short list from old man winter. Its hard during these lack of snow winters to stay motivated. Long high pressures dominate this once wintery wonderland. Finding motivation to get out and do anything can be hard. You just get in a slump and find yourself talking about the good old days and trying to remember what a powder day is like. That’s when you just need to call a friend and go for a walk somewhere in the Mountains.
The Wasatch mountains always have something for you to do and good snow is to be had. Today a few of us from MtnRanks decided to go poke around in Big Cottonwood canyon. The moment we pulled into the trail head our spirits were lifted, we put our skins on and started to tour up through the woods. The sun was shinning, the birds chirping and the comforting silence of the wild filled our ears. No expectations, we just went a direction to see where we’d end up. Happy to be outside, skiing was the last things on our minds. Shooting some photos and enjoying the sun, we geared up and skied back down to the road. To our surprise the snow was awesome, creamy and shredable. So next time you are waiting on it to snow, maybe the snow is waiting on you.
