What’s better than having a snowmobile? Having a friend with five (big ups Kiki).
Although the snow scene in Utah has been sparse, we try to make the best of what we’ve got – and we succeeded. A couple of team riders, friends, and myself ventured out into the Utah backcountry for some sled sessioning. In addition to having no snow, Utah also has terrible snow pack at the moment. The avy danger has been high and avalanches suck as bad as man-eating-fish. All negatives aside, Utah is good for gorgeous days filled with friends, guns, and brews.
We left the cabin nested in the Uintas at the crack of 10am. Anything steeper than your grandmother’s driveway was covered in avy slips so we stuck to the flats and got creative with some creeks.
After some cruising, we made a fire and put the pistols to use.
Even though the snowfall is below average, there is still plenty to go around, and get stuck in (as we found out the hard way).
With only one runaway sled and an accidental front-flip, it was a successful day. Thanks again to team rider Kiki!
