A great area on the western side of Cameron Pass, the 7 Utes area see's a fraction of the traffic and rightfully so. A long and complex approach combined with an area that has terrain traps to numerous to mention keeps numbers low.
That said, some great days can be had if you can commit to the 3.5 mile approach.
How to Get There
The trailhead is actually 4 miles west of the Cameron Pass summit on the south side of 14. Park at the pullout just of the road and skin up the well defined road heading SSE. You will end up on snowmobile trails and jeep roads before taking a left onto a trail putting you in the drainage for 7 Utes mountain. Follow the drainage up to the head wall/saddle between 7 Utes and Mt. Mahler.
The approach can be tricky with some complex route finding on the way up. Solid map skills and someone who has skied there before is highly recommended.
