Cornice Ridge is a fleeting place for backcountry skiers. In winter, access to the Tony Grove parking area requires a snowmobile, and the ridge grows an impassable, giant cornice (hence the name). But this playground for snowmobilers is prime for autumn backcountry skiing and snowboarding when the snow is too shallow for heavy machinery, the cornice is still an infant, and Tony Grove Road hasn’t snowed in yet. If you time it right, you can make laps below Cornice Ridge on open, north- and east-facing bowls that consistently have the deepest early-season snow in the Bear River Range.
