Living in Utah has its benefits, and every winter, NS students get a chance to do some of their favorite winter activities: skiing and snowboarding. Just up Fairview canyon there is a skiing and snowboarding trail called Walker’s Run. 

The best thing about it? 

“You don’t have to pay,” sophomore Ivan Talbot said. 

In a recent NS Times survey, students’ answers showed that around half the students ski or snowboard. Not only do they like to snowboard and ski, they do it a lot. While around a third of students go up Fairview canyon at least one time each winter, more than 16 percent of students go to Walkers run at least six times each winter.

But while NS students go snowboarding and skiing up at Walkers run, they aren’t the only ones.

“Every winter I come up. This was like my learning spot ten years ago. It was amazing then. There are a bunch of people now,” said local snowboarder Greg Brito, who is originally from Puerto Rico.  

Over the last few years, Walkers run has become an extremely popular place to ski for free. Many people have come to Walkers run, including some out of county, and even out of state. 

“I ski up by Jackson Hole a lot, that’s actually where I have lived for a long time. I’m usually up there a lot,” said Ben from Wyoming, who came with a friend from Spanish Fork. 

People everywhere ski and snowboard and go to different resorts and trails, but at NS, students overwhelmingly prefer to snowboard, with 35 percent saying they snowboard and only 8 percent indicating they like to ski. 

“I love [snowboarding], man. It’s my passion. It’s like skateboarding,” said Brito. 

And while some really love snowboarding, others want to try skiing, just a little later in life.

“I haven’t tried skiing just because everyone says as soon as you start skiing you never go back to snowboarding so I figure I’ll wait till I’m about thirty to start skiing, but while I’m still young, though, and got good knees, I’ll stick with snowboarding,” an unidentified snowboarder from California said. 

Snowboarding and skiing may be fun, but again, they wouldn’t be possible without resorts and trails. Walkers run is for both experienced and novice skiers and snowboarders with quite a few different trails that you can take. There is Highway, which goes over the top, Walkers run, which is the regular trail, the Ravine, which starts on Walkers run and goes down into a ravine, and then Step, which takes a different route down larger hills. 

“The one after that hill to the right, [Walkers] man, that’s a beauty one cause it’s not that deep, and it’s continually powder. It’s like a natural pipe. It’s amazing,” said Brito.
