Killer Weekend: Monticello, Utah
Words and photos by Bret Edge
Multisport days and good grub in the Land Above the Canyons. Quick, name a Southeast Utah adventure town whose name starts with “M”.
I bet you didn’t guess “Monticello”, but this little outdoor paradise just an hour south of the popular outdoor destination of Moab, Utah, is every bit as rad — without the crowds, traffic and expensive hotels. Multisport days start in the high desert and end in the high alpine. Homemade donuts, authentic Thai food and make-it-yourself pour over coffee keep fuel levels (and stoke) topped off during a killer weekend in the “Land Above the Canyons.” click to continue reading on adventurepro.us

Abajo Mountain Trip Report: The Utah Ski Hut You’ve Probably Never Heard Of… – Jason Ringenberg, Snowbrains, January 2020
Abajo Mountain Trip Report: The Utah Ski Hut You’ve Probably Never Heard Of…
Words and photos by Jason Ringenberg
In a remote mountain range hidden away in the desert of southeast Utah, there is a cozy hut perched on an impressive mountain ridgeline. Right outside the door, there are endless possibilities for powder skiing and riding. From low angle trees to 2000 foot long open bowls, it’s nearly impossible to go wrong. The best part? There’s nobody else there.
Tiny Home in the Abajos
Words and photos by Paul Mags
During the winter, I love to ski tour.
Besides being a full body work out, I find that skiing lets me enjoy the woods and mountains differently. I am gliding through the snow, taking in the brisk winter air, and getting to experience the natural world in a different way.
When I first moved to Moab, I did not comprehend at first what kind of skiing the mountains offered. Be it the La Sals with its backcountry bowls or the Abajos (locally called “The Blue Mountains”) more conducive to touring; I soon realized that my skis did not have to go into storage. I could ski in these local ranges and enjoy the winter landscape beyond hiking…click to continue reading on pmags.com
Bears Ears National Monument is not like the dramatic Zion or Yosemite national parks. While there’s beauty all around, it’s the layers of life and history that give definition to these lands. Local guide and adventurer Dustin Randall believes one of the best ways to see it is on a mountain bike.
With the monument’s few paved roads, biking accesses abundant remote and hidden secrets, nestled among the exposed rock and high-country setting. From 12,000 feet down to the shores of Lake Powell, hike, bike, climb and carefully explore the starkly beautiful and fragile lands of Utah’s Bears Ears… click to continue reading on visitutah.com
Loving the Uphill Battle with Roam Industries
Words and photos by Locke Hassett
“Long time no see!” piped Dustin from a leather chair near a window with grey morning light pouring in through the huge windows of Roam Industry, a backcountry focused bike, climb, and ski shop in Monticello, UT. He sips his coffee as we catch up and listen to Zeppelin. His kid has teeth coming in, and he is a small business owner in a small town. He is tired, but not too tired to laugh, talk, and show me around the shop…click to continue reading on The Radavist
According to a large (and growing) number of fans and followers, enduro racing is possibly the best thing to happen to mountain biking since tubeless tires. While the discipline’s most skilled riders have been racing in the Enduro World Series (EWS) since 2013, the thrill isn’t reserved for the pros. Countless races have sprung up around the country and the world, from well-attended weekends with big-name sponsors to the most grassroots of gatherings….[the] Abajo Enduro also called the Blue Mountain Enduro, this event takes place near the Bears Ears National Monument and features three stages over the course of two days in the Abajo Mountains. The race is somewhat exclusive, with a 50-racer cap, but as of this writing, there are still openings available for riders to experience an unexpected side of Southeastern Utah…Click here to keep reading on singletracks.com
