Generally safe avalanche conditions. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features. Natural and human-triggered avalanches unlikely.

Description

Exit through the Crest Backcountry Gate at the top of the Crest Chairlift. The Utah Avalanche Center put a transceiver test station at the gate. Then bootpack the 300 or so feet up Pioneer Ridge and back down to the saddle. Green Slope drops down from the saddle on the wide-open and low-angle slope.
