Looks like touring is winding down. What a shift between this weekend and last. Well today went up to ride the Timpanogos West Face. I have been eying the line since I moved here a few years ago. It didn't disappoint. Missed ya Dan!
Booted up the entire 6,500 vert feet. First time using crampons. They are nice haha
Corn Harvest. Corn was perfect the entire way down.
I was so stoked to hit this line. I am beat today. Long approach but totally worth it.

damn Logan I have purposely avoided looking at this page so I didn't see your report. Working doubles has been killing me, super bummed I couldn't motivate myself to get up after 1.5hours of sleep. great job!
I too was in the La Sals last week. Spent 3/31 - 4/3 at the Tomasaki Hut. Definitely the shittiest hut I've ever stayed in. We lucked out with one great powder day and even rode settled pow and Slick Rock in one day. As usual, I took very few pictures
Obs: ~150 cm of snow near Geyser Pass on Wed. Snowline was still well below Geyser Pass parking, too.
Hit up Days from Spruces this evening...Snow was Super Duper!
got a lap on each of these...snow was really good, bottomless turns the whole way.
crazy UFO cloud...bunch of high marking from sleds...looks like a couple naturals in Cardiff from daytime heating or wind loading?
good to have winter back
some nice looking lines back there
North-Northeast were really good, anything else was zippered to heavily crusted...exited apx @ 6:30
gotta show some sigs
snow felt like it was bonded well in days, didn't notice/see/feel any slabs popping at all...winds were gusting out of the north/north east up at the ridges...thought maybe it would be icy towards the ridge but the snow was holding on, at least were I was the winds were not doing very much damage if any.
Wow Dan those are some lunker rainbows! Was all of that in Utah?
Went out this morning. Snow was still fluffy down to below 7k in BCC if it hadn't seen any sun yesterday. About 6 inches at 7k, a foot at 10k. It was really good above 9k. I was worried more about keeping it out of my face than staying off the buried crust up high.
