A nice long powder stash

Statistics

Analysing terrain data

Exposure

Exposure

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs…) but only the consequences of the skier falling.

Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.

Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.

Description

A great backcountry powder stash that can be reached by taking the High Saddle Traverse all of the way outside of Snowbird Ski Area boundary.

Remember to only enter through open gates and never duck ropes.

Scotty's Bowl is backcountry terrain so a beacon, shovel, probe and partner are mandatory.

Scotty's Bowl will spit you out at White Pine Trail Head a bit down canyon from the Snowbird base area.

You will either need to hitchhike back to the resort or be ready for quite the walk up the road.
