(HD) Wasatch Mountain Podcast


Crossroad Studios is taking it to the peaks for the 2010-2011 season, climbing every summit in the Wasatch Mountains over 11,000 ft. The Wasatch Summit Project will be high above the ski resorts ripping the powder in ways most of Utah has never seen. The allure of Utah’s pristine backcountry has spurred the conception of this year video project, which will follow a group of local riders/mountaineers through the winter season, capturing their struggles and successes as they try to reach the summits of these 22 prominent peaks. A growing hit-list of chutes, spines, flakes, and runs await them as they make this difficult journey.

Provo Peak (11,068') marks the next summit on the hit list, when the boys discover alpine ice crust existing on all the summits above 10,500'.
