The Canyons Periphery and Peak 9,990 Professional Review and Guide

"Easily the best backcountry access on the Park City (PC) side of the Wasatch, and the
side (slackcountry) at the Canyons rivals any resort in Utah. But beware the dreaded
PC ridgeline snowpack. It is perennially more avalanche-prone than the Cottonwood
Canyons due to shallow, weak snow, typically underlying strong windslabs."
