Deep Days in Utah part 1
After having a couple days of recovery time from the Aspen trip Jeremy called and said he wanted to get a crew together for a Logan mission. He said Jussi was gonna fly out and meet up and Keegan and Hoop were already on their way. Photographer Jeff Curtes and Andy Wright also joined the session. We figured there was gonna be about 2ft of new snow. We got to the trailhead and quickly realized it was gonna be alot deeper than we expected.The trailhead in the morning on a bluebird day is an exciting place.
Photographer Andy Wright is prepared for UV rays. His face was covered in what looked like Zinka all day.
We got to the zone and Jussi started the scouting. It ended up being about 4-5ft deep. There was no way the snowmobiles were making it up this slope this day.
Before the sun came up Hoop decided to get some shit hooks in.
Since the snowmobiles couldnt make it up, Jussi decided to climb the old fashioned way. Breaking trail the entire way up.This is how deep the bootback was after his climb. This day was exhausting.
