Davenport Hill and Upper Silver Fork Professional Review and Guide

"Davenport Hill, one of the high points on Emma Ridge above the Town of Alta, provides many classic ski descents from her summit—most notably in the upper bowls of Silver Fork. The mountain divides the bowls, which makes it like a high-altitude buffet table—you can choose to ski whatever you want from here. Tight chutes, steep, north-facing glades, and open bowls with short approaches are all here for the taking. Backcountry skiing in upper Silver Fork is very similar to tours in neighboring Days and Cardiff forks, where dawn patrollers sneak in powder runs before work. But Silver Fork remains less crowded due to the fact that it’s not along the Cardiff Pass skin track, leaving more untouched powder for those willing to traverse the ridge a bit to garner the goods."
