Pillow Talk In Utah's Backcountry
on January 23, 2012
The old adage, ‘when it rains it pours’ can be flipped when it snows in Utah to read, ‘when it snows it dumps!’ With 4’ of accumulation in five days and another 12” – 14” on the way tonight, January is shaping up to be a record-breaking month in snow totals. The “million dollar storm” as it’s been referred to hit late Wednesday and will continue with a series of storms until next weekend.
Ride Utah and local shredder Brock Butterfield went exploring Logan Canyon, near Beaver Mountain, to hike some legendary pillows that were piling up in the backcountry. While the local resorts were enjoying a fantastic return of Mother Nature’s bountiful gifts, we found a few natural features to hike and hit for the day.
Thanks Grant Weyman, from Channel 4 News for the storm update and remember to ride responsibly in the backcountry and check out the latest avalanche forecasts at the Utah Avalanche Center
