Smith and Morehouse Reservoir is a beautiful place nestled into the western edge of the Uintas, where ice fishermen, snowmobilers, and Nordic skiers can be found recreating. You might even get lucky and run into a sled dog tour on Forest Road 33 on your way to the mountains north of the lake. These steep, forested slopes are the closest skiing from the trailhead and rise up to a broad ridge, terminating at Point 10002. Shoulders, gullies, and numerous terrain traps guard some challenging tree skiing, but avalanches are a huge concern here, so be confident of slope stability before setting off on the skin track. Also, everything north of national forest land is private property, so take care not to trespass.
