Wasatch Range, Ski Traverse. It was reported that Doug Byerly, Jon Allen and Lome Glick made perhaps the first “high ski traverse” of the Wasatch Range. Starting at the southern end of the range with Mt. Nebo, the trio spent 23 days covering 250 miles, finishing in the Wellsville Range on March 20. In the days prior to their start, they made 11 caches of food and fuel, which allowed them to keep their packs down to 30 pounds apiece. (Rock and Ice 86)
