Willow Fork, or “the Willows,” is a generally low-angle and avy-safe backcountry ski area across the highway from Solitude Mountain Resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon. It’s a lesser known but awesome place for either a short tour or an all-day yo-yo fest where you can find open, low-angle bowls next to steep tree runs covered in well-spaced pines. Willow Fork also provides easy access to the Wasatch Crest, where you can ski into the north-facing and avalanche-prone West and South Monitor bowls. To the east of Willow Fork is USA Bowl, a marquee line where skiers at Solitude can look upon your backcountry powder tracks with jealousy.
