Cardiff Fork in March of the worst Wasatch winter on record

These are pictures taken during an outing last March. In a season 2014/2015 that was the worst on record these pictures show that provided you stay high enough, you can get good powder days in the Wasatch in any season. We started our skin up Cardiff from Big Cottonwood Canyon and skinned up towards George’s bowl.

Directions to TH: Follow Big Cottonwood Canyon (SR 190) about 8.8 miles up the canyon to Cardiff Fork aka Mill D South Fork on the USGS map. In winter use the parking lot by the 190. In summer you can drive a bit further (1 1/4 miles) up Cardiff Fork to the parking areas by the campgrounds.

Here are the pictures (click to enlarge).

...and some more powder...

Mike summited!

Did I mention there was a fair amount of snow?

Holy Toledo!
