Mount Nebo is the highest peak in the Wasatch Range. It’s also the southernmost point, so she sees much less traffic than her urban sisters up north in Salt Lake. Winter finds Nebo especially devoid of people as access is difficult and the approach is long. Mount Nebo is named after the biblical overlook in Jordan where Moses was granted a view of the promised land he would never enter. If you have the moxie to make the climb, you’ll find a skier’s promised land of challenging couloirs, forested gullies, and fantastic views from the highest perch on the Wasatch Front. But be prepared for a strenuous, all-day adventure on expert-only descents through steep couloirs.
