Ski swaps are a great way to buy all the ski and snowboard gear you need for the winter season while saving money at the same time. There are usually thousands of new and used skis, boots and poles to choose from, and money earned at most swaps go to benefit a charity organization.
Ski Utah posted the anticipated Utah ski resort opening dates and it looks like Solitude will be the first to start up the bull wheels and get the lifts humming on November 13.
Lanterns have long been an integral part of campsites for generations. Like the crackle of a campfire, the hiss of a gas lantern embodies the experience of spending the night outside. But gas lanterns are large, heavy, and require fuel, making them inappropriate for long backpacking trips. As a result, headlamps are a preferred source of light for backpackers. Although they’re great for setting up a tent or making dinner in the dark, headlamps don’t create the warm, glowing atmosphere that a lantern provides.
Serious campers and backpackers are always on the lookout for the next big thing among lightweight cooking gear. But rather than spend tons of cash for space-age titanuim pots and bowls, there is a new option out there. Silicon. Enter the Guyot Squishy Bowl.
The Bobsled, a wild descent from the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, is a semi-technical series of rutted single track, stream beds, banking turns, jumps, obstacles, low-hanging branches, and several abandoned cars. Any mountain biker will tell you it’s is the only way to ride down between City Creek Canyon and Dry Creek as Bobsled is a sort of test piece for the Bonneville Shoreline. Talk to a fellow biker about riding above Salt Lake City, and they will always ask if you’ve tried Bobsled.
The morning of the fourth day on the White Rim Trail broke clear and sunny. The horrible wind that plagued us the day before was gone, but the storm left cold air behind. We dusted ourselves off, packed up, ate breakfast and started biking the last leg of our trip.
The warm weather and sunny skies were gone when we emerged from our tents on the morning of the third day on the White Rim Trail. It was overcast and the wind was not promising an easy ride. Keeping a positive attitude, and the hope that the weather would clear up later in the day, we ate breakfast and saddled up on our bikes.
