Featured Descent

Colorado » Glenwood Springs / Carbondale

William’s Peak North Face Proper

From the summit, cut through the trees to return to the second headwall.  At the bottom of the first snowfield/meadow, pick your way through the trees staying left (most people take the gully and cut left) to another prominent meadow.  One more group of aspens, and the third meadow becomes apparent.  Just beyond the trees at the bottom of the third meadow is the road where you started.

Numerous variations exist into some rather tight trees, but this route is well-traveled enough that you can get pow turns in the meadows and follow tracks through the trees to the next mostly-unskied meadow.

If you are skiing early season, keep in mind there is a lot of deadfall and broken leg potential lurking under shallow snow, especially in the aspen trees.

Details

Mill Creek Canyon is a very popular off-leash dog area. In the winter, cross country skiiers, snowshoers and hikers take advantage of the groomed road beyond the winter closure. This area can be rather crowded on a weekend.

Canyons accessed from Mill Creek provide skiing opportunities for you and your pup.

Mill Creek Canyon allows dogs, however, off-leash dogs are only permitted on odd days. Please respect this rule to protect one of the few off-leash areas in the Wasatch.

How to Get There

East on 3800 South (Mill Creek Canyon Road) from 3500 East (Wasatch Blvd.); Wasatch Cache National Forest, UT.
