Bountiful Peak is a cool little gnar zone in Farmington Canyon that is unfortunately only accessible in the spring unless you own a snowmobile. It was possible to ski here in the winter when Skyline Drive was plowed year-round. A landslide in 2011 caused major damage to the road and closed it for years. Now that the road has been repaired, the city of Farmington has decided to cease winter maintenance, and the road is now closed from November 1 to sometime in April or May, depending on conditions. But as soon as the winter gate opens, Bountiful Peak becomes an accessible corn-skiing playground that’s close to the city and sees little traffic. It is, however, a major snow-mobile area, so be prepared to share the mountain with two-and four-stroke engines.
