Bald Mountain is the most accessible of the major Uinta Mountain peaks. She sits just off Mirror Lake Highway on Bald Mountain Pass and can be skied after the road is plowed, around Memorial Day weekend. The route up is pretty straightforward as you can either follow the summer trail from the pass for south-facing shots, or boot straight up the east side of the mountain from Mirror Lake. But don’t let the ease of access fool you, because the runs on Bald Mountain are steep and rocky, so it’s best to make spring turns after a big snow year, or bring your rock boards so you won’t worry about the inevitable core shot.
