Featured Descent

Pinnacle Gully

The route starts with a very short, narrow section passing the pinnacle of rock which gives the gully it's name. From there the gully opens up and allows for some fast and fun skiing at a sustained steep pitch (which I measured at around 45 degrees).

The gully drops you into the Loch Avon basin and the quickest route back is to skin up Coire Domhain before trudging back across the plateau to the car park.

This gully is ideal to link up with another two or three nearby for a full days skiing.

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.
