For most people there are four seasons: Summer, Winter, Spring and Fall. But when it comes to the state of Utah, there is one season not mentioned in the previous four that rules them all – Multi Sport Season.
By definition, Multi Sport Season is the short window of time when the cool, yet dry, weather of late Winter pairs with the warm, long days of Spring creating the unique opportunity to experience silly good skiing and quality mountain biking and/or trail running in the same day.
Disclaimer: I totally made up that “definition.”
I may be biased, but I’m pretty sure no other destination, city or state, offers the quality and quantity of Multi Sport days like Salt Lake City and Utah do. Sound off if you disagree.
From making turns at Alta to hittin’ the singletrack on Antelope Island, here’s what this year’s Multi Sport Season in Utah has looked like to me:
First Tracks in Main Chute. Approximately 11 a.m., Friday, April 26
Trail running on Jack’s Peak. Approximately 7:00 pm, Friday, April 26
And one more example, just for good measure:
Topping out on Alta’s East Castle hike. Approximately 10 a.m., Saturday, March 16
Mountain Biking on Antelope Island. Approximately 2:30 pm, Saturday, March 16
