If youre coming to Utah and youre planning on skiing some serious backcountry, make sure you have The Chuting Gallery in your pack, right next to your beacon, shovel, and probe. This books full title is The Chuting Gallery A Guide to Steep Skiing in the Wasatch Mountains, and that couldnt be more accurate. In just over 90 pages, author/mega bad-ass ski mountaineer and Utah Avalanche Center veteran Andrew McLean provides an unparalleled reference to the hairiest, most aggressive lines Utah has to offer. Mixed in with McLeans sardonic wit are guided instructions for tackling descents with names like Suicide Chute, Hypodermic Needle and Femme Fatale, to name a few. Needless to say, actually skiing the lines McLean describes in The Chuting Gallery is not something most skiers should even contemplatebut if you stepped out of the loony bin this morning nailed down to some burly planks and toting an ice axe, wellhave at it. Hope you make it back.
