Sliding The Tush: Off The Grid in Utah’s Tushar Mountains

“The sister range to Utah’s Wasatch Mountains may be lesser know,” Erme Catino writes of the Tushar Mountains in the October issue, “but it features the same approachable terrain and deep powder.” Last winter, Catino and a crew from Salt Lake traveled to southern Utah’s Tushars to check out the state’s highest yurt operation, Tushar Mountain Tours. Along with yurt owner Alec Hornstein, they experienced everything from powder to hurricane-force winds, and Catino wrote about it in the October issue feature “Sliding the Tush.” Here’s a video from the trip, and to read the story in full, grab a copy of the issue, here.
