Broads Fork Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Rising out of the suburbs to a height of 11,330 feet, the Salt Lake Twin Peaks are skiable on five aspects and preside over the incomparable, glacier-carved alpine ski paradise of aptly named Broads Fork. The upper terrain is almost entirely treeless, steep, and avalanche-prone. Its ruggedness and alpine feel make it a favorite of hardcore Utah ski mountaineers.Ascend the summer hiking trail from the S-turns as it contours west and switchbacks into Broads Fork and crosses the creek. From here skiers can often travel more efficiently by skinning through sparse woods on either side of the trail. After 2.1 miles and 2,100 feet, the terrain becomes treeless, and the acreage of skiable terrain is mind-boggling."
