AF Twins from Mt Baldy

American Fork Twin Peaks, with its tasty Pipeline Coulier, rises above the soon-to-dock Snowbird Tram. The Pfeifferhorn sits west (right) on the ridge. Hidden Peak contains the top shack.

This view makes me want to build a house on top of Mt Baldy (Alta)! After skiing the bottom 2/3's of Mt Superior one March morning, I paid the $8 or $12 at Alta to get to the top of the old/slow Sugarloaf triple in back and booted up to ski the bigger of the Baldy Chutes. While on top, the view did not suck. :) Fuji Provia 100 (sepia).

thanks for adding

this to the Hidden Peak page. great shot! I am curious though, do you have family in Utah or something? How does someone in MN choose Utah's mountains to come to so much?

My wife and I moved to UT...

from NJ back in the mid 90's to ski, plain and simple, and spent the next four years skiing and hiking every chance we got (which was alot). Me more than my wife.

We have since moved to MN (weep...weep..sniffle) for what else, a job, but luckily my parents retired to Park City. So, I head back at least twice each year, sometimes three times. For me, UT is home, more so than where I live at the moment. Thanks for the props! Brad.

White Baldy?

I may be wrong here, but I don't think White Baldy is visible in the picture. There would be a visible continuous ridge between it and the Pfeifferhorn. I think the peak just right of west twin is Red Top Mountain.

If you look at this picture from Lone Peak (http://www.summitpost.org/image/127319/Here-are-all-the-wasatch-.html), you can see that White Baldy is quite a bit south of the rest of the ridge, which would place it behind other peaks from Baldy.

Awesome picture though. I dig the sepia.

Re: White Baldy?

Yeah, I think you are right. I'll make the change. Drunk summitposting should be banned. :)
