Mount Watson Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Watson is a beautiful peak, and all eyes turn to her impressive east face when
driving west from Bald Mountain Pass on the Mirror Lake Highway. Despite her intimidating presence, the mountain is easy to reach in spring and offers descent routes from
advanced steeps to intermediate shoulders. Unless you own a snowmobile, you’ll have
to wait until Memorial Day weekend to ski her, when the road opens and allows access
to the Trial Lake area. Otherwise, the approach route will be too long for a day tour.
Also, because the best skiing and snowboarding is east facing, an early start is recommended so you can make turns before the spring snow gets too wet and dangerous."
