Guardsman Pass is on the road between Brighton and Park City. The road is closed during the winter at the Guardsman Winter Gate. From Guardsman Pass you can access 10420 Northeast Bowl, 10420 (the false peak), and Promise Land. When the snow is extremely thin and you're looking for a little exercise, skinning to the pass is a good choice.

Park at the Guardsman Winter Gate. Put on your skis just past the gate and head up the road. It takes about an hour to get to the Pass.

Although fairly rare, avalanches do occasionally occur above the road just before it reaches Guardsman Pass.
