Lift Accessed Skiing: Wasatch Sidecountry

Lift Accessed Skiing: Wasatch Sidecountry

Use a lift to access superb backcountry terrain with a ski guide.

Lifts provide us with speedy access to high mountain terrain. We will reach the Wasatch’s uppermost elevations and stack up vertical with considerably less hiking or skinning. We may make a ‘one-up’ to gain altitude on our way to more remote peaks, or return to the lifts multiple times, combining lifts with short hikes and traverses in order to enjoy untracked powder adjacent to the resorts.
