Need to Know

Start on top of "the cone" for the best run. You'll know it when you see it.

Description

Powder Park III is a great low angle slope that holds snow well. It is a perfect destination for a first time tour in the Wasatch. The whole Mill D North Fork area has relatively low avalanche danger and is a good environment to practice your pits and get some good turns in.

There are several ways to access this slope, the most direct being via Short Swing. From the top of Short Swing keep traversing the ridge and "the cone" will come into view. Descend into the saddle and then up to the top of the cone. There are always more than a few skin tracks that will bring you to the top, however. For the most part, you can pick any one that you see before the Y in the Mill D North Fork trail.
