Description

The Highway to Heaven Traverse runs between Twin Lakes Pass and the Highway to Heaven Gate (which is at the top of Solitude's Summit chairlift). The Highway to Heaven is commonly used by Solitude skiers to access backcountry terrain.

All of the terrain above the Highway to Heaven Traverse, and the terrain below the Highway down to Twin Lakes Reservoir, is within Solitude's Forest Service permit area. Solitude frequently performs avalanche mitigation within this area as permitted by the Forest Service.
