construction at snowbird

Someone just made me aware that snowbird is building a hotel at their resort and that American Fork Twin Peaks hike is closed from the east side??? Does anyone know where exactly they're making the hotel and if it will intrude with the ridge landscape? I can't imagine them building something that would be that obtrusive but...at the same time...I've read other ridiculous proposals. is the Twin peaks trail closed on that side?

Short backpacking trip this month -- Where should I go?

I haven't backpacked in 20 years, but I've got a funny window to do just that this month: all of a Sunday and Monday; I can also leave Saturday night around 6:00 pm, which could be enough time to reach a trailhead and find a campsite (maybe). (I wish I had one more day so I could hike for day, have a summit day, and hike back for a day...but I don't.)

I want to ...

Lost Gloves on Upwop

I left some black wool gloves on the summit of Upwop last Friday when doing the Beatout. They've got grippy material on the inside part of the palms and fingers. I figured I'd post this in case someone sees them and has a chance to bring them down. Thanks!

Flag on Mount Olympus

Last week I went up Mount Olympus and on the summit was a US flag which had been placed there by a group of local missionaries.

On Thursday I went up, the flag was gone, and the pole was lying in the rocks next to the concrete base in which it had been placed, so I carried it down.

On Saturday I saw a group of Forest Service employees on the way to the summit ...

Mountain snow? Mountain snow?

I saw some reports of significant new snow in the Wasatch. Any information if this made it eastward in the Uintas? The Snotel gauges don't show anything. Headed out that way soon for a trip up Kings Peak and wondering what to expect. I know a couple of days of sunshine this time of year will cause a lot of melting. Thanks in advance!

Timpanogos routes this time of year?

I'm driving through and what to hit Mt. Timp. Not sure where to look for condition reports, etc. Is there still a fair bit of snow up there? What would be a recommended route given current conditions? I'd have more fun doing some moderate snow climbing and scrambling than taking the easiest route to the summit. If there's a web resource that I should be looking at for this detail, I'd appreciate it. From the ...

Footwear for Hiking in the Narrows

Taking my sons out to Zion NP in a couple of weeks. We want to hike in the Narrows. I'm sure some parts will still require wading. I want us to be comfortable. What's the best type of footwear for this activity?

Conditions on Deseret Twin Couloirs

Has anyone been to/seen these lately? We were thinking of making the trip from Boise, ID and would like to know if there is any snow still in the Twin Couloirs on Deseret Peak and if so, how is it for climbing?

Found: Shell on Pilot Peak

I was up Pilot Peak on the afternoon of 5/25, and found a nice shell. It probably belongs to the party I passed on the drive in, but it fits me and I could use it. If it's yours, PM me a description and I'll try to get it back to you. If you live in the SLC area, I can probably hand it to you today as I'm passing through.

(Yes, Pilot is technically ...
