Mount Raymond

Mount Raymond Professional Review and Guide

"Mount Raymond is the second-highest mountain along the Big Cottonwood–Mill Creek Divide, standing a mere five feet lower than its neighbor, Gobblers Knob. But Raymond is no slouch, as extreme ski terrain is found off the summit. An approach that’s longer than most for the Cottonwood Canyons plus a knife-edge ridge on the ascent can add up to a tour that is pretty spicy. If you’re not up for a heart-pounding ascent and descent, don’t be dissuaded. A shorter tour on the Raymond shoulder above Baker Pass into Mill A Basin is an ideal place to make intermediate powder laps after a storm. Begin skinning up the bottom of the obvious Butler Fork drainage on the north side of the road. There is usually a well-traveled skin track here that crosses over a (sometimes) frozen stream. The path traverses the steep east side of a V-shaped gully, and then levels out in a stand of pines."
