Backcountry skiing O Face cliffs park city ridgeline should be on every cliff hucker’s ski list.  This area has big pillowy drops with clean landing zone.  Big O also serves up premium backcountry skiing for the non cliff huckers.  If you don’t want to hit the cliffs of O Face then be sure to ski down before McBurney’s and the O Face.

Go slow when Dropping into O Face .  It’s a blind drop from the ridgeline and unless you’re familiar with the area be careful.   It’s advisable to take a small rope.  You may be glad that you brought it.









There are several good ways to access Big O and the O face cliffs but the most popular seems to be from the Park City ski resort’s gates atop 9,900.  After exiting the gates follow the ridgeline south past Silver peak and another unnamed peak.  Big O is right past the unnamed peak. And just beyond that is McBurney’s and the O Face cliffs.


O Face is another reason Park City Canyons Village has the Best backcountry skiing in Park City.
