Snowshoeing Snowbasin Ski Area, Utah
February 2010 - 36 photos
On Sunday the 14th of February I went snowshoeing. Being Valentine's Day, I didn't think I should ask others to go, so went alone. Some of my friends and especially my kids don't like it when I go alone, but you have to consider that where I went up in Snowbasin there were hundreds of people all around me. I could hear them all the time, and occasional passed by close enough to say hello or talk to them. Many were skiing and a few were on snowshoes. Also I was in cell phone range the entire time, and in fact my son called me and we talked for awhile.

The day was fantastic, with clear skies and plenty warm. I even had to take my coat and gloves off. I hiked the area south of Snowbasin between Snowbasin and Strawberry. At one point I came upon a ski run and walked up the side of it for half a mile, then crossed over to the south, and then headed back down. I spent 3 hours walking across the snow up there, but stayed away from any steep open hillsides. It is relatively flat all through that area and the snow was about 3 feet deep, making it great for snowshoeing. Being alone and in no hurry, I took lots of photos for panoramas, and ended up making 64 panorama pictures. I had a great day.
