Horsehead Peak

Horsehead Peak Professional Review and Guide

"Horsehead Peak is a local landmark around Monticello. The mountain gets its name from a formation of evergreen trees and snow on the northeast aspect that forms the shape of a horse’s head. It’s quite obvious when viewed from town, and it also makes a good point of reference for ski touring in the range. As far as skiing and snowboarding on the mountain, access is straightforward from North Canyon, and long, 2000- vertical-foot descents can be had on enormous open bowls with perfect fall lines. If you time your trip when snow conditions are prime, you’ll have a run of a lifetime by riding the Horsehead."
