Backcountry at The Canyons

by Utah Author December 10 2006 0 Comments


Today we headed to The Canyons for some backcountry Pow. We rode the Flight of The Canyons gondola, Tombstone, and Ninety-Nine 90 on our way over to Square Top. There were a few tracks already on it, but there was still plenty of fresh snow. It was settled snow that had a wind affected top layer. Once I dropped in it felt pretty creamy so I started to open it up. Then for the third day in a row my boot got loose in my binding and my ski got loose. A couple turns later it fell off, and I fell. After that we cruised over to the Demo tents by the Red Pine Lodge and got my binding fixed. I’m pretty sure my skis will stay on now. Then we cruised back around for another lap. This time we skied over to the Wall of Voodoo, skiers right of Square Top. We scouted the cliff that we’ll hit after the next dump. Then dropped in on some more Pow. After two good laps we cruised the groomers back down to the base. There’s good snow out there, and once the next dump hits huck season will open. Check out the video shot by Randy Reynolds.
