Red Baldy and White Baldy are the two major peaks that crouch at the head of White Pine Canyon. Both are large mountains with exposed, rocky terrain and avalanche-prone slopes that offer some of the most adventurous skiing in the Wasatch, mostly due to variable snow and a long approach from the White Pine trailhead. You can cut your ascent time in half with a lift ticket at Snowbird, but the backcountry gates in the resort’s Gad Valley are rarely open until late spring. Periods of stable powder or late-season corn are the best times to visit.
