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,
