Sub zero Wasatch tour- February 1st 2011

Hiking and snowboarding in arctic cold front temps is a bit ruff. When mixed with precipitation, those temps bring the finest of Utah pow... On February 1st there was a fresh 15 inch layer at the top of Little Cottonwood. It was one of the coldest days i've had on a splitboard to date! Ian, Zach Clanton, Pouch and i went for a stroll to enjoy it.

Here is Ian, dropping into a classic Wasatch tube.




^At 10,000 feet, temps were -14°F with 30 mph gusts of wind on the ridgeline, and it becomes roughly -46°F. A couple thousand feet of blower pow will make anyone smile!
