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.
