Scheduled Course - Dawn Patrol Days

Dawn Patrol Days

The early bird gets the worm! There's nothing quite as satisfying as seeing the high peaks come to life one by one as the sun gradually illuminates the snow covered ridgelines. This morning meditation has become a life-giving ritual for many and is a sight to behold. You'll finish feeling accomplished, pleased and ready to tackle anything that comes your way with your whole day still ahead of you!

The Wasatch hosts incomparable access and is known for its 2-3 hour car-to-car and door-to-door iconic tours. Let UMA guides do the tour planning work for you and show you some of their favorite go-to lines hidden in plain sight.

"I wish I would have slept on" - Said no one ever. So, set your alarm and don't snooze!

The plan is to meet every other Wednesday at the pre-confirmed trailhead at 6am and be done by 9am. Hammer out an early morning training session, ride the fresh pow and shoot the breeze alongside your local, friendly UMA Guides.
