Delano Peak is the highest mountain in the Tushar Range, yet it’s one of the easiest to get to and ski down as long as you’re staying at the Snorkeling Elk Yurt. In two hours you can reach the summit from the yurt, otherwise you’re looking at a full day in the skin track if starting at State Route 153. You can also reach it from the Eagle Point Resort. Powder tours and spring corn are par for the course on Delano Peak, depending on the season, and you can ride it on either low-angle bowls on her west face, steep chutes to the south, or moderate runs into Poison Creek on a northwest aspect, all of which allow an easy return to the yurt.
