ski tour upper reaches of the uintas - November 16, 2008
In the winter, the Mirror Lake Highway is not maintained past the Soapstone turnoff, 14 miles east of Kamas. The highway is usually closed by the first of December. It is quite a treat to drive to mile marker 26 or beyond and tour in the high country from Crystal Lake Trailhead. These trips are designed for lightweight backcountry gear as used on King's Peak. Meet at the K Mart parking lot on Parley's Way by 8:30 am. Contact trip organizer for meeting plan if driving from Park City area. Carpools can be arranged to allow for separate return times (NTD+/MOD-). MLH parking fee ($3) and be prepared to share the cost of transportation. Dogs OK.
