Utah Backcounty

Untouched powder is a beautiful thing.

But while many Utah resorts give easy access to side-country or backcountry terrain, that doesn't mean everyone is qualified. You must be completely aware of current conditions and 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.

Ken Block's New Backcountry Whip

by Ski Utah Yeti

November 4 2009    1 Comment

There's a new beast roaming Utah's backcountry. In areas that were once only accessible by snowmobile, snow cats, and backcountry skiers there is a new game in town. A Subaru STI outfitted with cat tracks is now powering through the trees and to the top of a peak near you. Built for DC's Shoes and Snowboards owner and Utah Resident Ken Block this one of a kind whip will be turning heads again this winter in the backcountry. Check out the video.
