The Tram(poline) to Mt. Baldy

A 100 degree day in Salt Lake – friends visiting from Ohio – what do you do? Find relief from the heat on a high summit in the Wasatch Mountains! In a repeat of a previous hike we decided to bag Mt. Baldy, using the Tram at Snowbird Resort to help us with the first 2,900 feet of a 2,968 foot ascent.

We caught the first Tram ride of the day and started out towards Mt. Baldy. Dinoboy, who had hiked this peak before, led the way and the rest of us followed along dutifully. The high altitude barely dented the enthusiasm of our lowland visitors. Everyone made it to the top in fine form.

The Summit Team

As we assembled Cheeseburgers at the summit another pair of hikers were ascending Mt. Baldy from the east. They looked hungry so we offered them our extra Cheeseburgers and explained the Summit Cheeseburger mission. Welcome, Eagle Powers and Seven Peaks of Champaign, IL!

Instead of returning by Tram, or hiking all the way down, we descended by the Gad Valley chairlift. Since you’re facing away from the mountain, it provides a great view the whole way down. At the resort we further entertained ourselves with the Bouncy House, the Alpine Slide and the Trampoline.
