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

Climb the South Spur Standard route of Mt Adams.  The route is crevasse free and popular so there is a good boot pack almost year-round. 

Desend from the summit back to the false summut then stay skiers right to drop into the SW chutes and enjoy 4000-6000ft of sustained 35 degree skiing depending on time of year.

How to Get There

Cold Springs Campground.  Directions follow the signed from the Trout Lake ranger station.
