    Southern Utah: Henry's, Abadjo's, La Sals

    quick loop to get out of the parking lot that is slc, i really wanted to see what was up w these ranges. been skiing a lot and not feeling super strong or motivated, did no planning ahead and just went. i really like solitude, quiet and long approaches, so the henry's are where its at. i'm going back.

    the rig and the southern henry's, mt pennel and cook. i think id try cook next time, between the drive, the 5mph dirt road drive and the approach, looks like a 3 day affair to summit

    really nice trees on a nw aspect of adjabo summit. adjabo's are cool, the towns are creepy as fuck, lots of skiing potential in this range, moreof a pleasent range, not huge and scary

    heading into castle valley, la sals from the north, did not ski due to the road being a sheet of ice and first priority being not crashing my new home on wheels. will be going back.

    Looks like you picked a good season to desert us Easterners and move out West for the ski season!
    For those stuck in the Northeast, check out the NE Rando Race Series and my avalanche course. (For other avalanche course providers anywhere, feel free to use any of my "homework" assignments for your own courses too.)

    Rad! I love how easy it is to find a wilderness ski experience in the SW. I've been eying up Nevada a lot lately and I'm looking forward to some exploratory trips there, NM and in Utah.

    Cool trip. Did you mean the Abajos near Monticello & Blanding, not Adjabo or Abadjo's?
