Playing in the snow!

Utah had a very heavy snow pack last winter and as we drove to Salt Lake City the high peaks of the Wasatch Mountains glistened white in the sunshine, before the thunderstorm that is.

Our trip up Little Cottonwood Canyon ended at Snowbird, where we took the tram to the top of Hidden Peak at 11,000 feet.

The views from the summit were spectacular.

All the  summit trails were closed because of the snow.

A couple of passengers on the tram had their skis and were skiing/hiking down.
Looked like fun, but we stuck with the tram.

Have fun, we are!


  1. Here I am sweltering in 105 and you guys are playing in the snow? No fair!

  2. It was fun, we really enjoyed it! But 105 in Ouray? didn't think it got that hot there, hope it soon cools down out there.

  3. So enjoying your trip and pictures
