The run from Crescent Peak.

Need to Know

Bountiful sometimes gets very powerful east winds. When this happens, we can get cross-loading on this run as the winds blow across Crescent Ridge.

Crescent Ridge itself is a typical ascent for doing another lap or going home. On one occasion, the east winds were so powerful, I was blown off my feet while attempting to summit Crescent Peak via this ridge. First, don't be out there if the forecast calls for significant wind. Second, get out before things get too windy, and too wind-loaded.

Description

This line curves around the west side of Crescent Ridge, like the shape of a crescent moon.

I was told a story of this very slope sliding, but only after the skier who triggered the slide had already skied the slope several times. All his tracks were taken out, and the slide went much further than thought possible.

Skied this ascent?

I think this is looking down Crescent Ridge. Great ski runs are to be had left and right of it. The ridge itself is a good ascent option, though it gets steeper and steeper near the top.

Here you can see my ski tracks in Flap-Doodle Bowl.  You can also see one of my skin tracks.  This picture was taken while ascending Crescent ridge.
