A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to head south from SLC and check out the La Sal Mountain range. Never having been in the region before, not knowing the snowpack/terrain, and being by myself, I was keeping my expectations low. After talking to a local bc skier I received some mixed beta, and was even more unsure about what to expect. Watching weather conditions, I picked my weather window, and headed up into the mountains with my fingers crossed. Conditions turned out to be ideal, and what followed was some of the best riding I have had all year.

What a freakin' awesome trip! :headbang:
Here is a video I made from the trip. Although my camera is HD, I always seem to lose video quality in the upload process.... :scratch:




And a link to a full trip report on my blog.

Very nice!
Love that place-- the river, the red rocks, the La Sals. Well done.

Awesome. Shredding mountains in canyon country kicks ass categorically--especially so here. Very well played.
