After the sweet day we had on Friday with Trackhead we headed to find the Wasatch Mountain Lodge at Brighton. Turns out it was a little more difficult to find than expected. For next time, its located at the far end of the Brighton parking lot behind the Brighton Lodge.
DD and I were the first ones there but soon other splitters started rolling in.
Needless to say, the pizza and beers were flowing. Thanks Voile!
Later on the tours for the next day were listed on paper plates and folks got to sign up for ones that sounded good to them.

The next morning the dj tour started down the road a little near Spruces campground.
The splitters making there way up the first slope. Mt Raymond I believe.

The next run would take us off the north side where we found great snow and some cool aspens.
From there we would head up to Solider (peak?).
The split train and age6andup contemplating why all hardbooters wear ski pants.
At the top we enjoyed another nice north face.

One the exit we enjoyed a 5mile+ ski out to a hitchhike back to BCC. It was a bit of a slog and an adventure but well worth it.
