Beartrap Fork is one of the best places to ski on a powder day in the Wasatch. This hidden drainage harbors excellent low-angle slopes and an 800-vertical-foot run of perfectly spaced aspen trees that would make Billy Kidd leave Steamboat Springs in a hop turn. With tree-anchored slopes and wind-protected aspects, Beartrap is the place to be when the snow is deep and the avalanche danger is considerable. There is also good touring in the upper canyon among low-angle evergreen trees. This area is easily accessed by the 9990 lift at Park City Mountain Resort (formerly Canyons Resort) as well.
