The Moonshine Couloir on Mount Arkansas might be the most committing line off a high 13er in the Tenmile/Mosquito Range
Easy access from Highway 91 by Fremont Pass, a gentle approach up the valley, and an interesting couloir that keeps you on your feet all make Mount Tweto a worthy spring ski descent.
The weather was ideal and the avalanche stability had improved, dropping to between moderate and low. It was a perfect weekend to join our friends at their cabin up in the Ragged's above Marble. Every time we visit here it's a great time. There's just so much terrain to see and ski, some of which is just too inaccessible without the sort of advanced base camp that a remote cabin...
At the start of every new season we like to set some goals, and we'll lay out a checklist of outings and activities we hope to complete. The goals aren't always written down and we might not always get to every one, but we try. Highland Bowl days, backcountry days, ski mountaineering days, rando races, ice climbing, the family ski trip, of course lift-accessed days (100?)— they’re all part of...
Clearing weather allowed for a descent of the Pine Creek slot, one of the Zion classics.
The fall off-season wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the desert. I recently joined a group of friends on a trip to Zion National Park, a favorite spot in southwest Utah for some slot canyon adventures.

Flash floods can kill, and some slot canyons can collect rainwater from upstream basins...

A 20 mile ski outing to Mount Raoul, 13,803 ft, near Castle Peak, with a return trip over Conundrum Peak and down the Conundrum Couloir
