Featured Descent

Utah » Big Cottonwood Canyon

Mill B North

This is a moderate climb but due to the southern aspect and the lower elevation, the snow is often melted out and sunbaked towards the bottom of the trail. Not a very good place for spring skiing once it gets warm. This canyon is access to a lot of other terrain back in the drainage including couloirs and other steeper terrain.

Details

This bowl is big, very big and if you mess it up it will kill you. Only try it if you want to ski a classic and have a high tolerance for risk. This thing is very easy to get to and if the time is right its worth it, if the time is wrong your going to die. A car shuttle is recommended otherwise it can take a while to hitch hike on Castle Creek road. You can hike from the bottom of Aspen Highlands but that would be crazy save yourself three hours of hiking and buy a lift ticket and make it a 45min hike from the top lift and 4000+ft of sickness.

How to Get There

Buy a lift ticket ...ride to the top....hike to Highlands Peak.. ski the other side...repeat if you can......
