FOX PEAK BACK BASINS Ski Touring 2 500m
Map J 37 Fox Peak has an excellent website at Snow information is on Before going backcountry, approach the friendly ski patrol and ask about present backcountry snow conditions. The Fox Peak rope-tow ski lifts take you up 500 vertical metres to 1840m (J37: 332044), the next 500 metres are up to you. Head straight up the ridge to Fox Peak itself (2330m) where you will find views that make the effort worthwhile. The way down gives you two options, appropriately named North Basin and South Basin. North Basin is accessed directly off the summit. Ski down through the basin and traverse to skier’s right at around 1450m to return to the ski lifts. South Basin may be accessed off the summit ridge directly, or drop off the actual summit into a SW-facing basin and traverse to a col at 2100m (J37: 316043) which then drops steeply into South Basin. Traverse to skier’s left at around 1550m to return to the ski lifts.
