Mount Superior

Mount Superior Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Superior is the monarch of the Central Wasatch. Like a doting mother, she stands watch over Alta, providing a dramatic backdrop for resort photos and an irresistible lure for backcountry skiers attracted to her aesthetic south face that spills like a queen’s robe 3000 feet from summit to road. A relatively short approach and a knife-edge ridge to the top makes for an excellent adventure in itself and is a good way to access Cardiac Bowl from her north side via the north chutes. But that steep, cliff-strewn south face is a test piece that demands respect and should only be skied on a stable snowpack."
