2/3 Bear River range, UT. Bluebird again.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I decided to take advantage of the clear weather, stable conditions & get out for some more touring today.  The Bear River range is just east of the northern tip of the Wasatch range in UT.  I can't really say exactly what peak I was skiing from, as parts of the terrain are on private property.  I have been accused of tresspassing in this area before, but I think the "good ol boys" are just trying to keep it for themselves.  There are also ocassional heli drops in the area & maybe that has something to do with it.

 

I took 2 runs from the 9400' summit of the peak that bears my name, (that ought to be good for something) 1 to the northeast, & the 2nd to the southwest & down to my car at 5400'.

 

View to the north before starting my 1st descent:

 

This is about 3 pitches into my first run:

 

1 pitch lower:

 

View to the NW on my 2nd ascent:

 

This looks like one I posted yesterday, but it's not.  Getting ready to drop in for my afternoon run:

 

Looking down the ridge to the west:

 

Too the valley in the west, you can see some of the tracks from heli skiers:

 

Almost to the canyon at the bottom & getting warm:

 

Getting ready for the final uphill, & then down a narrow trail to the car.  Down to a t-shirt on Feb. 3rd:

 

I'm amazed at how much stuff I can get into a camelback mule:

 

Hope you enjoyed the photo trek,

Is that up near Logan?  I used to ski those mountains many years ago.  Really nice if you know to stay out of the slide paths.  Go get Tim Tromano out.

South of Logan.  The first pic is looking toward Logan.

Nice work 4ster. There is some fun terrain around those parts, I usually only ski that area in the preseason because of the private land issue.

Nice area to tour in, hit it several years ago post season with a friend from Pow Mow tours.  Good long shots if you hit them right, holds some nice snow late in the season.  Is the heli still operating up there?

Yes, the Heli still runs when conditions are right.  I think they were up quite a bit yesterday.

Yes.  I usually ski up there post season, or pre-season if conditions allow.  I live pretty close, so it is convenient.  I got some great spring skiing up there last May.

Let me know if you wanna hit it this spring.

Nice choice on the skis.  Not that I am biased or anything.
