Circle All Peak is a small mountain surrounded on all sides by bigger peaks like Mount Raymond, Gobblers Knob, and Kessler Peak. But what Circle All lacks in stature, it more than makes up for with 360-degree views of Big Cottonwood Canyon and fantastic tree skiing in Butler Fork. When avalanche danger is high, it’s a good place to tour as Butler Fork is at a lower elevation and grows large aspen groves that anchor the snowpack. Overall, the whole Butler Fork drainage is an enjoyable tour as you skin up through a quiet forest to ski protected powder that can last for days after a storm. The terrain isn’t very steep, but it’s the perfect place to go for a short tour with little uphill effort.
