Downhill Skiing/Snowboarding - Fairview Cyn 1/22/22

"Red Neck" adventure! Ski or board down and jump in a truck and do it again. I was seriously giggling the whole time. You can't beat FREE! Just 1 1/2 hr from Lehi.

Drive - Head up to the top of Fairview Cyn just past the Skyline Drive parking lot. Drop off location is next to an 8% grade sign (facing the other direction) - drop off skiiers/boarders on the rt. Pick up location is downhill, back down canyon, across the street from the "Turnaround 1/4 mile". Turn around at the actual Turnaround and then pick up skiiers and boarders on the right.


Activity -

Downhill Ski or Snowboard - Snowboarders will notice a 10-15 ft manmade hill they can start from. The first 1/3 of the run is slightly downhill through a meadow. Stay left to keep to larger and wider runs. If you go straight, you will hit smaller, more narrow tree runs. This section is a Blue rating. Some rails also. If you head left or right make sure you head back to make it to the vehicles. Too far right and there is a 15 ft cliff. See map below.

Sledding - we did have a couple people try sledding. It's tricky, but doable and kinda out of control :)
