Short Swing Professional Review and Guide

"Short Swing in Big Cottonwood Canyon is an ideal spot for a short tour if you can’t ski all day long. It consists of the entire ridgeline on the east side of lower Mill D North Fork. The ridge is composed of mini peaks that feature all kinds of ski terrain, such as steep, pine-covered aspects; sunny, east-facing back bowls; and west-facing, perfectly spaced aspen groves that spill down to Mill D for more than a thousand feet. Along with being a convenient spot to bang out a quick tour, it’s also a popular area during high-avalanche-danger days as many low-angle, tree-anchored shots can be found here."
