Red Top Mountain, also known locally as Red Stack, is one of many mountains in White Pine Canyon that’s over 11,000 feet. Red Top dominates the skyline with neighbors like American Fork Twin Peaks and Red and White Baldy. As a result, she’s a coveted mountain to climb and ski, with a long approach from the White Pine trailhead, or easier access from Snowbird. Many aesthetic lines, like Long John Silver and the Tri Chutes, fall from her crown, but the top is usually too rocky to ski from due to winds that scour her exposed crimson top.
