It is frustrating to see the resorts close with a base of 100" still on the ground. I guess it is time to learn the backcounty basics. Does the advice offered on this old thread still apply?
I am in SLC. Are there any clubs around so that I can learn as I go? I figure knowledge, especially of the dangers is most important and then see what gear I am lacking.
However, since I am 51 years old, maybe I shouldn't be concerned with avy danger since the hike up will most likely kill me!
Seriously, any direction on where to start and contacts would be appreciated.
