Backcountry Skiing Areas

Featured Descent

Utah » Big Cottonwood Canyon

Mill B North

This is a moderate climb but due to the southern aspect and the lower elevation, the snow is often melted out and sunbaked towards the bottom of the trail. Not a very good place for spring skiing once it gets warm. This canyon is access to a lot of other terrain back in the drainage including couloirs and other steeper terrain.
