Santaquin Peak


Santaquin Peak viewed from the fine community of Woodland hills.

The long approach up sunburn ridge to Santaquin's summit.

Some nice eye candy behind Santaquin peak.

Emilie and I on the summit looking north towards Provo, not realizing how sunburned we were getting.

Emilie dropping in from the summit, the conditions blew us away for a major wind event a couple of days early the recrystallized powered felt like it didn't get a lick of wind.

Myself enjoying some nice powder turns on a really warm day, Santaquin was a long slog but the conditions were stellar.  All in all the peak tops out around 10,500 and we started around 6,000 and skied fine northern facing powder shots all the way down to the car.  Just another day of skiing powder in the Wasatch with no one else around.  Here is video Em took of me hugging the shade line on one of the many pitch's we milked.
