It has been a wonderful early season and great while it lasted. It was awesome of the resort letting so many locals enjoy pre-season touring and the first turns of the season, both on the groomers and in the chutes. We certainly took advantage!
Access to Catherine’s pass remains open via the Summer Road. Please know that backcountry conditions persist. Temporary uphill access is permitted in the Supreme area, north (lookers left) of the Supreme lift line.
For all backcountry travel please keep yourself educated through the amazing resources provided by the Utah Avalanche Center.
