Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Routes: Utah


The Bookshelf

Local outdoor journalist, Jared Hargrave, compiled nearly 100 backcountry ski routes in the Wasatch and Uinta ranges in his new book Backcountry Ski & Snowboard Routes: Utah. From pre-work dawn patrol to multi-day trips, Hargrave outlines detailed touring routes including driving directions, trail distance, skill level, estimated trip times, high point elevations, avalanche path notes, and more. His guidebook also includes resources for avalanche, weather and road conditions as well as land managers relevant to the routes, ski/snow reports, and general safety information with a foreword by one of Utah’s premier avalanche experts, Craig Gordon.
