Annual Kings Peak Ski Tour

Such snow travel isn't my thing, but the Wasatch Mountain Club of Salt Lake City is sponsoring its annual one-day snow trip to Kings Peak on Saturday, March 30.
A hardy group does this every last Saturday in March using headlamps and standard backcountry ski gear.
Snowshoers are welcome, but since they can't glide downhill, such users have to turn around earlier.
The group will do this tour despite the weather, but they evaluate the situation from Henry's Fork.
It's usually one long day trek, though club organizers stress even only going to Elk Horn Crossing or Gunsight Pass is a worthwile experience in winter.
A friend of mine went last year, made it to Gunsight and did say it was worth it.
The group camps at the Henry's Fork Parking area Friday to get an early Saturday start.
For more info. on the trip, Call Steve Swanson at 1-801-272-5750, or Larry Swanson at 1-801-583-4043.
