While many residents and visitors to Utah have enjoyed the breathtaking scenery in Bryce Canyon, Cedar Breaks, Kodachrome Basin, and the Dixie National Forest in the summer, far fewer have experienced the spectacular winter landscapes of the region. With a four-hour drive from Salt Lake City, the skiable terrain in southwest Utah is easily accessible for weekend trips, giving backcountry skiers an opportunity to escape the more heavily used Nordic skiing and snowshoe trails along the Wasatch Front.
Ski Touring the Red Rock Country is the first guidebook to these winter trails in southwest Utah. Included are thirty-four detailed routes, with maps, for beginner through advanced cross-country ski and snowshoe routes (most are true backcountry routes), as well as a geological trail guide, GPS information for trailheads and major points along each route, and fifty photographs. The book also includes information on equipment, waxing, and a section on avalanche safety. Jonathan Wynn's guidebook is essential for anyone interested in ski touring in southern Utah.
