Avalanche risk for Nov 26, 2017: Low

Generally safe avalanche conditions. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features. Natural and human-triggered avalanches unlikely.

Great "side country" laps between Alta & Brighton.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry
If Catherine's area is closed, you can not access from Alta.

Need to Know

Can get cross wind loaded.

Description

Great quick shots available after a 15 minute sidestep out of Alta's Catherine's Area. And if you don't have skins, you can ski it a bit short and boot back up to Tuscarora saddle and ski back into Alta. Or continue hiking up the ridge for another lap!
