The Wasatch Mountain Range holds a special place in the hearts of Utah outdoors folk. Mount Timpanogos, Lone Peak, Ben Lomond; each peak presents its own story, its own challenge. Learning the language these mountains speak is something worth striving for and is possible for any Wasatch adventurer, so long as they know how to listen right.
We at Wasatch Mag highly value the language of the Wasatch mountains and the outdoors, which is why we created Faultline Film Awards - to give filmmakers and adventurers the opportunity to tell their stories through film.
