Potential Foothill Line

I’ve been looking at this every sunny winter day when I walk out to the parking lot from the lab.  The obvious ridge right in the middle of the photos looks fun.

It might be a bit wind hammered, but it always looks to have more coverage than anywhere else in the foothills.

I might have to make a point of climbing up there soon.  And I’ll bring skis just in case it’s good to go.  Who wants in?



  1. I just stumbled onto your blog. You know how it is, surfing random ski blogs in the fall while you patiently wait for the snow.

    I work up at University Hospital and eyed that same line almost every day last winter. I biked up to the base of that canyon this afternoon to scope it out. Turns out it is all fenced off private property owned by the Huntsmans, but I think we can skirt over from the south to avoid any run ins with the law.

    Shoot me an email if you ever want to hit it up this winter. I have my eye on a couple other shorter lines above the hospital that I would also like to hit, conditions permitting.


    • Yeah, I never got a chance to ski it. I never went up there, but had heard access from those neighborhoods and private property is tricky. I’d love to hit it up, but unfortunately I’m no longer local. Just moved out east to NC. I’ll be you can rope somebody in to join you though.
