Danger & Delight: A History of Winter Recreation in the La Sal Mountains
with Eric Trenbeath
Thursday, February 7, 6:00 PM
Moab Library Large Meeting Room
Eric Trenbeath, U.S. Forest Service Utah Avalanche Center forecaster, will give a presentation on winter recreation, past and present, in the La Sal Mountains, with a summary of how terrain, weather, and snowpack, create a high potential for avalanches in the range.  The talk will look at early efforts to pioneer the La Sal Mountains as a winter recreation destination, and a 1992 tragedy that left four skiers dead from an avalanche. Winter recreation in the modern era will also be discussed with a focus on backcountry skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling, as well as the advent of an "extreme sports" culture.

Kevin Fedarko
Beneath the River of Shooting Stars: Beauty, Austerity, and Grace in the Grand Canyon
Friday, February 15, 6:00 PM
Star Hall, 159 E Center St., Moab
Kevin Fedarko's work has taken him to some of the world's most dramatic landscapes. His deepest connection, however, is to the river and the canyon where he spend six years researching and writing The Emerald Mile, which opens a window into the hidden world at the bottom of perhaps the most iconic and beloved landscape feature in North America, as well as one of the most endangered. Despite the fact that the Grand Canyon is widely recognized as universally revered, it is surrounded on all sides by threats. In order to explore this paradox, Fedarko and his friend Peter McBride set out to walk through the heart of the canyon, from Lees Ferry to Grand Wash Cliffs - an arduous and illuminating odyssey of nearly 800 miles.
Join Fedarko as he presents the story of the Emerald Mile, shares insights from his through-hike, and discusses how the challenges currently facing the Grand Canyon are emblematic of the country's entire national park system.

The Evolution of Canyoneering on the Colorado Plateau with Brett Sutteer
Thursday, February 21, 6:00 PM

The Colorado Plateau contains the largest concentration of slot canyons anywhere on the planet. Some say the Golden Age of canyoneering exploration is behind us with most of the profound slots now descended and documented. In the last decade or so a handful of dedicated adventurers employing new technology and specialized techniques have revealed hundreds of canyons that went under the radar until recently.  Brett Sutteer, owner of Moab Cliffs & Canyons, explores the many characters, tools, and techniques that have brought these hidden canyons into the light.
