Allison, Bennett, Porter and I skied a chute in Little Cottonwood yesterday.  With only a foot or three of snow on the ground, slopes that harbor good skiing are limited.  The easiest accessed slopes have been skied practically into moguls even without the help of chairlifts.

We opted for a couple mile approach and found the upper drainage empty and without even a single ski track.   Cherrypicking one of the deepest drifted lines, we broke trail upwards.  After some extensive switchbacking, we topped out in the sun, peeled skins, pointed skis off the edge and obliterated our zipper up track.
