Mt. Nebo stands at 11.928, the highest peak in the Wasatch Range. Accessable from Mona, UT, majestic Mt. Nebo is a true gem. You approach via 4×4 road which you drive to the snow line. The climb is big 5-6,000 feet, so what better time to start hiking than 10am. The weather called for cloudy conditions so we were banking on that to aid our ascent and safe ski decent. You skin up the road for a mile or two and reach a slide path which you follow up the mountain. You follow this slide path for probably 4,000 vertical feet. We had great skinning conditions it was about 8 inches of bonded snow on ice.
