Honeycomb Cliffs

Having whooped all day at Powder Mountain yesterday, we decided to head into the canyon with the rest of the 1.6 million residents of Salt Lake City.

Still on a very big learning curve when it comes to ski touring in the US of A.  

We made our first crossing today from Little Cottonwood Canyon to Big Cottonwood Canyon over Honeycomb Cliffs - thankfully without the other 1.6 million residents. 

The sun shone and the snow was, well probably the best snow in the world.

The challenge for tomorrow is to find a venue away from the crowds; must be in the sun, a short drive, (by far the most dangerous thing that we have done); be north facing and must end in a coffee shop.  Yes, we set ourselves high standards.
