Abajo Peak Professional Review and Guide
"Abajo Peak is the tallest mountain in the range and has some of the most eye-catching ski and snowboard terrain in southeastern Utah. Huge bowls on her southeast face are perfect for corn tours in the spring when the snowpack calms down, and the evergreen and aspen forests on north aspects hold good powder and glade skiing all winter long. While the approaches from North Creek or the Old Blue Mountain Ski Resort are long, and the gigantic communication towers on the summit ruin the solitary backcountry experience, Abajo Peak’s ample ski terrain is totally worth the effort. From the parking area, skin up snow-covered CR 101 for 0.25 mile to CR 285. Go
left, pass an open metal gate with a ROAD CLOSED sign on it, and enter North Canyon.
From the turnoff, continue skinning up the road, which will probably be packed down by snowmobile tracks, for 3.4 miles."
