Bonkers Professional Review and Guide

"Bonkers, a massive ski line in upper Broads Fork, absolutely belongs on the list of classic descents in the Wasatch. A steep 4000-foot climb in four miles gets you to the top, where you’ll be rewarded with a nearly 2000-foot descent on a wide-open, northeast -facing ramp. The run is so long you can feasibly make a hundred turns from top to bottom. Just try to ski this thigh-burner without stopping. The saddle atop Bonkers also allows easy access into the expert-only Stairs Gulch, an enormous, glacier-carved gully that drops 5000 feet to the highway below. Both runs are pretty much snow-covered rock slabs, making for unusual avalanche danger (think glide
cracks). Ski here only when the snowpack is highly stable."
