“The aspen grove on the east slope of Beartrap Fork is great if you're short on time or if the avalanche danger is high.”— Asher Margolies
There is plenty of good skiing through the (occasionally tight) aspen trees. You can pick the aspect, from northwest to southwest, based on the snow conditions. It's best to avoid the area just above the aspens, and just below the steep rocky hill, because the rocky slope is steep enough to—and frequently does—avalanche (it buried a skier on January 24, 2010). The rest of the Beartrap Aspens has low avalanche risk. This would be beginner terrain if it weren't for the trees.
