Utah Corn Hunting

Here are some pics from my last few trips. It finally stopped snowing and as if someone flipped a switch, it seemed that spring was here. Warm temps and blue bird skies made long days in the mountains very enjoyable.

Celebrated my 100th day of the season by finally putting a line on mt raymond.

Everytime I would drive down BCC I would tell my self, "next time."



With no mad rush to chase pow and perfecr spring weather, the longish approach was somewhat enjoyable.



Wasnt so bad up top either.


Or at the bottom.



And wide gullys and fast snow made for a fun escape.



A couple days later I went to the lake blanch area, just across the street from mt raymond, to ride sundial peak.

I had to hike in/out about 2.5 miles each way on mostly dirt due to it being melted out or a hard and icy boot pack from hikers

Once I got to the lake and put on my skis, I was reminded why this place is such a popular place to hike...


Enjoying a beer while I wait for the snow to soften up a bit more. Snowboarding is definately contributing to a pre-noon drinking problem I may or may not have...


Then I signed my name a few time in the most amzing corn snow I have ever ridden before heading home.

That's awesome! I went to Utah a couple months ago and I remember seeing all the mountains in the BCC/LCC with lines on them. Sick lines.....

Lines like yours!

EDIT-- what's up with all the cans in Utah? Here in PDX we have very few choices when it comes to cans and craft beer. We're getting there, but no where near what SLC had. Lucky !

Well to be fair, Im pretty sure olympia and pbr are can beers everywhere But you're right, Utah and Wyoming breweries do seem to can alot of their beers. Its great for backcountry travel. No need to pack out heavy bulky bottles.

Wasn't sure about the Olympian. It looked like a fancy can so I figured fancy beer.

Up here we have a few choices, and they're far more expensive than their bottle version. A side from the reasons you mentioned I also like the way they taste better.

Anything in your normal store is 3.2. You must go to a liquor store for the goods.

glad you guys like the pics.

PDX is correct about the beer. Liquor store or bar for the higher point beer. Next time you are in Utah, make sure you stop at a liquor store before you leave civilization. They are in most towns with a reasonable population.

And despite the sweet cans, Olympia is far from fancy. But it goes down smooth. Its the water....
