Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

The Citadel

One of my favorite lines in the front range with lots of options.  You can ski the couloir between the double summits for a nice 40 degree pitch with rock wall on either side. 
You can also ski the Northeast face.  Not sure on the slope angle but it is a open face with limited exposure. 
You can ski the South East face for a more mellow descent (better if you started at Butler Gultch) with amazing terrain and small playful features all the way down. 
**Take all necessary avalanche precautions.  It is not uncommon to get a lot of wind loading in this area due to its proximity to the divide.**

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.
