Mount Tukuhnikivatz Professional Review and Guide

"No skier has ever visited Moab for mountain biking or rock climbing and looked to the horizon at the snow-covered La Sal Mountains without thinking that they’d like to ski there someday. And of all the peaks visible from Moab’s red rock paradise, Mount Tukuhnikivatz is the pyramid that stands out the most, with a vertical relief that will make any skier or snowboarder salivate. Locals just say “Mount Tuk” for short, but the full, hard-to-pronounce name—Tu-kuh-ni-ki-vatz—is a Native American word that roughly means “where the sun sets last.” As for the tour, climbing and sliding down Mount Tuk is a springtime tradition when stable corn snow allows safe
travel on this prize of a desert peak. Parking is in the large, plowed lot with bathrooms and informational signs. The route starts on the northeast side of the lot."
