The terrain on the mountains of the Wasatch front in Utah offers some of the most diverse and unique geographies to ski and snowboard. Getting off the beaten path a little provides some of the best lines in the backcountry.

SkiUtah provides a list of the top 10 trophy lines to bag when weather and conditions cooperate.

While they aren’t all particularly difficult to access, they are still for the expert skier that knows how to safely navigate avalanche prone areas and has a fair amount of backcountry experience before starting approaching this list of local favorites.

Solitude, Brighton, Deer Valley, Snowbird, and Alta are just 5 of the 36 iconic destinations available on the Ikon Pass.
