Weathering Heights descends from the weather station near Tom's Hill all the way to the main Mill D North Fork trail.

Asher Margolies
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

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.
