With a 5am start on Friday March 2, 2007, my good friend CJ Whittaker, a free lance photographer, and I headed for destination Circle-All Peak in Big Cottonwood Canyon via the Bulter Fork trailhead. We were surprised to see some cars already at the trailhead and even more surprised and…. frankly thankful to see a fresh trail break through 30-40 inches of fresh Wasatch powder. When we caught up to the trail breakers, we were sure to bow to them and thank them for their hard work. Good uphill etiquette.
With a somewhat low slope angle and reasonably spaced aspen trees, Circle-All Peak can be a great place to ski or ride on high avy days. After some snow stability tests, we made a few epic and bottomless runs and were back to work by 9am with fresh attitudes and huge smiles on our faces.
