Millvue Peak, an unassuming mountain that lies along the Mill Creek–Lambs Canyon Divide, is a favorite secret for local skiers, splitboarders, and snowshoers. It’s easily reached from Lambs Canyon on a well-worn summer trail that cuts through enormous old-growth pine forests and aspen groves. Excellent skiing through perfectly spaced trees that are well protected from wind and sun can be found all over the north-, east-, and west-facing aspects of ridges that surround the peak. An especially good tour can be found in the fir trees on the east side of the canyon on the flanks of Millvue Peak. The views of Mill Creek Canyon and the Salt Lake Valley far below are spectacular from the pass and provide a splendid backdrop for a traverse of the ridge to the top of Millvue Peak. Simply go left (southeast) and follow the undulating Mill Creek–Lambs Canyon Divide for 0.5 mile to the top of Millvue Peak, which is marked by a communications tower just below the summit.
