Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

St. Mary’s Glacier

The descent is a mellow run that ranges between 20º and 34º.  There is a headwall on skiers right, which will put you in the glacial lake, and is prone to avalanches.  Be careful of this in with new snow, as the under layers are pretty firm and often icy.  Skier's left is a much more mellow line, that ends at a pile of rocks, where often people will leave lunches and whatnot.  In winter and spring you can ski back down the road and end up back at the car.

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.
