“Some of the early goods of Mill D North Fork.”— Asher Margolies
When the conditions are good Weathering Heights is great, but due to its easterly aspect it is often sun-crusted. When crusty, the snow is usually better in the trees that are skier's left of Weathering Heights. Although Weathering Heights averages a relatively safe 28°, it does steepen just above the Mill D North Fork trail.
The direct route to Weathering Heights is to follow the directions to Mill D North Fork from the Spruces trailhead. About a thousand feet after the main trail crosses to the east side of the Mill D North creek, a skin track (usually) heads directly up Weathering Heights on the left.
The other option is approach Weathering Heights from Tom's Hill. This is a common approach after skiing Reynolds Peak. Weathering Heights is 500 to 1,000 south of Tom's Hill depending on which line you want to ski.
Note that an avalanche here could bury innocents skinning the Mill D North Fork trail below.
