MOUNT SUPERIOR WASATCH | UTAH | UNITED STATES
Mount Superior is one of the classic skis in the Wasatch range. The peak towers over Snowbird and Alta ski resorts, and is maybe most famous for the massive avalanches it sends down to the canyon road. It is a rugged peak, and any route to the peak involves some fairly serious scrambling with exposure. The peak overlooking Alta is not the true high point, but about 11,050 feet. The highest point, referred to in some books as "Monte Cristo" is two peaks beyond. Mount Superior is no place for beginners. It has huge avalanche potential, steep skiing (high 30 degrees), and tons of exposure.
Summary | Elevation: 11,132 ft
