Depending on snow cover, it may be possible to descend NE off the summit to the open snow field above the NE couloir. You can also descent east off the summit and traverse skiers left to the snow field above the NE couloir. When we skied it, the couloir narrowed about half way down the face to about 6 feet (this of course will vary with timing/snow conditions). Once thru the narrow section, you're basically at the top of the apron, so let 'em rip!!
For extra credit, climb and ski one of the north facing couloirs on North Star Mountain on the way back to the car.
Little Cottonwood Canyon has steep chutes, tighter trees, and rockier outcroppings. Decent snow, but it is pretty steep
Very limited winter camping along this road
