Wolverine Cirque Professional Review and Guide

"Split by massive cliffs that fall from the ridge, Wolverine Cirque is a steep skier’s dream. Dozens of couloirs line up like toy soldiers, ranging from easier descents in wide chutes to pucker-worthy hop-turn fests in super technical hallways. But enjoying this playground of chutes comes at a price, as the cirque is notorious for having a bad, wind-loaded snowpack and high avalanche danger. Giant cornices often guard the entrances of the chutes, and the lower aprons can be choked with avy debris. As a result, spring is often the best time to ski here, when the snow is stable and the weather calms down. While Wolverine Cirque is actually in Big Cottonwood Canyon, the true touring route starts at Alta in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Sidecountry skiers can also find easy access from the Millicent area at Brighton Ski Resort."
