You may encounter a few obstacles on the approach.  I couldn't find a way around or over this log, so I ended up going under it.

You may come across a few bloody trees on the approach.

This was taken at the top of the east twin looking north.
Jun 12, 2020 near Grantsv…, UT
This was taken from the top of the east twin looking west toward Deseret Peak.

Somewhere along the approach, this is where I switched from booting to skinning.
Jun 12, 2020 near Grantsv…, UT
This was taken at the top of the east twin couloir looking south.
Jun 12, 2020 near Grantsv…, UT
The first couloir you see on the approach is Temple Couloir.
Jun 12, 2020 near Grantsv…, UT
This is Temple Couloir with some peeps in it as the fog was rolling in and getting thicker and thicker by the minute.
Jun 12, 2020 near Grantsv…, UT
This is looking up the west couloir of the twins.  Skiing off fall-line and avoiding lots of debris was not my idea of fun, so I skied the east twin.

My shiz at the trailhead, getting ready to boot up the trail.  Didn't take too long to find skinnable snow.
Jun 12, 2020 near Grantsv…, UT
The twin couloirs of Desert Peak. The west twin, as you can see, had a rock slide in it. So I skied the east twin.

The broken down cabin of Kenny Creek.  You'll get odd looks going down the trail with skis on your back, and everyone will be asking you if you "reached the cabin."  Tell them you got lost and couldn't find it.

Front and center is the Session's Peak Run: a beautiful line, and a beautiful face...

Approaching 10,420 from the false summit.

Me skiing down the Bountiful Peak run...and out of breath, because I suck.

My tracks on Mark's Ghost north (Flap-doodle south)

At this I'm super tired, so I'm not skiing very well.

Fun skiing on the way back.

Black Crows should pay me.  Here I'm ready to start skiing back down Session's Ridge.  Sure glad I didn't have to walk this section. You can ski it all the way as far as is shown in the photo, and then some, before you have to finally boot the rest of it.

My ski tracks down the second half of Session's Peak Run.

My ski tracks down the south shoulder of Session's Peak.

At the summit looking back the way I came.  Not a very good shot as the convexity of the mountain here hides the technical part of the ridge.
May 3, 2019 near Woods C…, UT
Saw lots of bus-sized cornices.  Stay well away from them!  Also, it would have been so nice to have crampons here.  I decided not to bring them last-minute.  Dumb.

The crux of the ridge.  Hard to do with skis on your back.
May 3, 2019 near Woods C…, UT
Your first view of Rocky Drainage (sometimes called Rocky Basin, but it's not really a basin.)  The line I favored from the peak followed the drainage to the right side of the picture.
May 3, 2019 near Woods C…, UT
Skin away from the dirt/rocks, yes, but don't skin too close to the edge of the cornice line!
May 3, 2019 near Woods C…, UT
In spring, you boot the dirt until you find snow, then start skinning.  You may have to transition between walking and skinning a few times before the snow becomes consistent.

Another small stretch of skiing that can be done while making your way back down Farmington Spine.
