Utah Backcounty

Untouched powder is a beautiful thing.

Dylan Green Skiing Backcountry Powder

Many Utah resorts give easy access to side-country or backcountry terrain, however, that doesn't mean everyone is qualified. You must be completely aware of current conditions and be prepared for anything by using the proper tools, backcountry gear and information. Do yourself a favor and use the Utah Avalanche Center as a primary resource. We also highly recommend signing up for Ski Utah's guided Interconnect Tour. There's no better way to go beyond the ropes and ski a side of Utah few get to experience.
