Summer is an extremely busy time in Wood Camp Hollow, because it’s home to the Old Jardine juniper, the oldest-known Rocky Mountain juniper tree. Estimates put the tree at 3200 years old, so it attracts curious hikers like a magnet. But in the colder months, Wood Camp’s bowls and steep ridges are empty, save for backcountry skiers in search of winter powder and spring corn. The skiable area is massive and can be accessed by a steep ridge climb to the Bear River Divide. It’s slow going though, as limestone rock bands block the way and must be climbed over or circumnavigated. The effort pays off as soon as you make big turns on open, south-facing headwalls below point 9065 or slalom through north-facing trees south of Point 8571.
