Monday’s storm did great things for the Wasatch’s backcountry. North facing slopes held high quality pow even late into the afternoon when we skied. Most of the day was full of beautiful mountain views and sparkling snow.
We skied in the Silver Fork area of Big Cottonwood Canyon. It’s a great area for new comers to backcountry skiing. The hike is short and mellow with no difficult switch backs the whole way up. The terrain down is equally as forgiving with everything from open bowls to picturesque tree skiing.
High pressure and warming temps look to be taking over for the next week so get your leftover pow turns in while they last!
