Before there were ski resorts in Utah, there was the Wasatch Mountain Club. Established in 1920, Wasatch Mountain Club was formed by a group of Norwegian ski-jumpers who’d traverse Guardsman Pass on foot, seeking out the legendary powder & extensive backcountry where Brighton Resort exists today. Hear from ski historian Alexis Kelner about the legacy of the club at 100, and where it’s going next.
