    Hayden Peak is a rather iconic mountain in the Uintas of northeastern Utah.  It marks the western boundary of the main core of the range, where the peaks get high and rugged.  We’ve spent a decade exploring the range, and the potential for first ski and snowboard descents off the highest peaks in Utah is real.

    My Brother Ian and I have skied numerous lines on the Hayden massif over the years, but never from the top.  Last May, Ian spotted a line and we just had to see if it would go.  We had ourselves a full value experience on the mountain that day, linking up 2 staggering couloirs from the summit.  I wonder if we were the first to ride Hayden Peak from the top?  Regardless, this is our proudest Uinta line yet.

    Yeah!! Nice! Congratulations guys! Man you made quick work of those ice cruxes!

    After much research, experimentation and consideration, I have decided adulthood is not for me. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Wow. That was serious. Every summer I eye all those mountains with intent to go hit some one day.
