Hiking Up Albion Basin at Alta | Pre-Season Snowboarding

An early snow season means hiking season just got a whole lot more intense. Instead of hiking with an intense pack, sweating the entire time and swatting away bugs, I put on some snow-pants, tie up my snowboarding boots, strap a snowboard to my pack, grab my poles, and head up the mountain!

First Powder Day of the Season at Brighton Resort, Utah

There's some snow in Utah! Actually, quite a bit of snow! While the valley still looks like fall for the most part, driving 30 to 40 minutes up the canyon will get you into an early winter.
