Little Willow Tour, Big Cottonwood Canyon- January 2016

This storm dumped so much snow, and it has stayed so cold, that this snow has stayed well preserved. We decided to head up to the Willows for a line into Little Willow. We started up the road and soon headed west on the summer trail. We made our way to the corner ridge and found a skin track through the trees. After a nice climb with views and some new terrain, we had not seen, we made it to the saddle next to Willow Peak. We made the switch over, then decided it was time to go for a run. We had nice powder through the trees and found some nice glades to carve it up in. Then it was a maze through the trees until we hit the summer trail on the west face. There is some variable snow out there on the exit where the sun had at it, and it made turning a bit difficult. Still an awesome first day of 2016 on the snow. A great day in the mountains with one of my best friends. Enjoy the video. More adventures to come! Pray 4 Snow!
