Some of the best moderate spring skiing in Farmington Canyon can be found on Mud and Rice bowls. Each of these open faces have major corn potential and are located on the north side of Point 8735, a small high point just north of Bountiful Peak. If the late-season snowpack is deep enough, you can ski or snowboard all the way down the creek beds to Skyline Drive. Other lines like Hell Hole Creek and Miller Canyon can also be accessed from here but may hold less snow in the spring. Since Skyline Drive is now closed from November 1 until April or May, it’s best to get here as soon as the road opens to make spring turns before the snow melts away.
