Hello Wasatch Backcountry Supporters!
Now that the mountains (and valley) are dressed in snow, the excitement for ski season is full on! With this welcoming of winter, we typically hold our annual WBA member meeting.

We’ve heard whispers of the backcountry blowing up this season with newcomers. Let’s do our best to maintain a level of order in addition to safety and friendliness. Along those lines, if you know anyone who is new to the backcountry, please share this meeting link with them. While the thought of more people in the backcountry might make you cringe, hopefully this equates to more people standing up to protect and preserve backcountry terrain in the Wasatch. Decisions regarding the future of the Wasatch Mountains are incredibly complex. As such, we welcome new users to get in the know by becoming a WBA member.
Keep up the snow dances. They’re working. 🌨❄️💃🕺🤞
Cheers to a great season!
