Go Deep: Powder Purest

There's a reason Utah's snow is envied all around the world, and if you're lucky, the Wasatch Powderbird Guides will show you the light.

Published: December 2004

Leave it to me to book a ski trip right at the end of the weirdest three weeks of early March weather that anyone in Utah can recall. It's been intensely warm for days, with temperatures climbing well past 70 in Salt Lake City. The Wasatch Mountain snowpack has been rendered an unsafe mush, and when it's not, high winds and poor visibility make it unsafe to fly. The Wasatch Powerbirds have been doing very little flying lately.
