Southern Utah First Descent Playground for Lexi duPont

I recently took a trip to Southern Utah to ski terrain that hasn’t seen this much snow in upwards of 30 years. A giant amphitheater of towering red rocks above 10,000 ft., the conditions provided a great adventure through untouched lands.

The canyon looked like one giant terrain trap with 100-foot cliffs at the top of the rim guarding everything that looked skiable. The good snow funneled into what looked like steep and unmanageable gullies. We spent the entire first day assessing the terrain and analyzing the snow pack in order to form well-crafted opinions about the area. The next day we were lucky to find an entrance into the giant sand castle, and the snow was stable enough to ski everything in sight. It was the best skiing of my life. I hope you enjoy the eye candy.

    Lexi said that it has been 30 years since we have seen snow like this. In 2005 we had more snow than this. I ski those shots every year and no year has compared to 2005. Although this year has been amazing.


    That is an amazing video! I would love to have still photos for my office… That being said Don’t anyone else do this. You MUST have a permit in Cedar Breaks National Monument.

    And we had double this snow in 2005.

    Everyone else come to Southern Utah and check it out. This is just one of the thousands of Awesome sites to see around here.
