Alta Periphery and Grizzly Gulch Professional Review and Guide

"This area offers easy access to a wide variety of terrain and it’s always open from Grizzly Gulch Trailhead or Supreme or Sunnyside Lift in Albion Basin (so long as either lift is running). Partial-day tours are feasible, as are one-way through-tours to Tibble Fork, Brighton, and Grizzly Gulch.

The Dry Fork and Catherine areas are conducive to beginner tours, with low slope angles and short return climbs. Wolverine Cirque and Mount Tuscarora appeal to steep couloir skiers. Be aware that snowmobiles frequent the Dry Fork area, especially on sunny weekend days."
