The Phelps Brook Slide Path is a hidden surprise just east of Wolf Creek Pass. Located right across the highway from the north and south forks of Phelps Brook in Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, this old avalanche path is now filled in with young aspens but is littered with downed trees and boulders. It’s also one of the longer ski descents in the area and a nice alternative to the short runs at Wolf Creek Peak. If snow coverage is good and Wolf Creek Pass is still open, you can ski this open, 650-foot shot or make low-angle turns in the aspens in a quick hour or two, and then link it with the runs at Wolf Creek Peak for a full day of touring.
