Carl saved our week. It hadn’t been properly snowing in Utah for a long long time, and judging from the snow in the resorts we were a bit worried about our backcountry touring trip.
He knew exactly where to go.
Where everything else was all tracked out, and there were even moguls in some backcountry areas. Not where we went.
We skinned up an amazing peak around Big Cottonwood Canyon, through the trees, up a ridge for some of the most beautiful views, and then down into the back bowl where we actually found knee deep soft snow.
Carl was an amazing guide, knew his ways up the mountain, taught us some new techniques along the way, and is just an incredible fun guy to hang out with.
