Little Willow, Big Cottonwood Canyon- 1.24.2016
We got another shot of snow that spiked the avalanche danger to high for steep terrain in the range. We decided that Sunday Funday would be a low angle spot. We decided to hit the Willows again as that has mellow low angle terrain, and some of the best glades in the range. We made our climb up from the road and took a new route in. This was far more scenic than the last trip in here and the snow was just right. We broke trail to the summer trail, then we rounded the corner and took the ridge up. The wind was brisk in the open areas, and the cold front was for sure showing what its got. After a while of climbing and breaking trail, we made it to the saddle just below Willow Peak. After getting warm and changing it over we decided to take Little Willow out as no one had dropped in that side. We made a great choice! The ride was so fun moving through the trees and getting nice powder turns in the glades. We had a fun out as well, as the snow stayed soft and did not set up. Another great day in the Wasatch!
