Salt Lake City, Utah
Brighton Ski Resort
Great Western Ski Run
Clayton Peak 10,721 ft.
We started at the top of Guardsmans Pass at the head of Big Cottonwood Canyon. From there you go right (south) up to a minor summit, Steven and Ruojia had to leave from here, but not before sharing some treats. The rest of us continued to the top of Clayton Peak. It wasn't a hard hike, but the snow made it a bit more interesting.
