Scramble to the Top
Look up, steady your hands, and start your climb. The best way to experience Utah is on the way up; Utah’s mountains are renowned for their technical difficulty, variability, and surface challenges (everything from redrock to granite, shale and quartzite are found out here). Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort in Little Cottonwood Canyon offers climbing lessons to visitors in the spring and summer, while the canyon itself is home to four bouldering areas that offer beginner to advanced routes. The truly wild at heart can go face to face with sheets of ice with the help of Utah Mountain Adventures; strap on a pair of crampons, pick up an ice axe and head for the Wasatch Mountains, where world-class ice climbing waits. Beginners welcome.
