At Collins Face you have the experience of skiing over a hanging valley that has not been significantly affected by post glacial erosion.  The result is an abrupt steepening of pitch from the gentle slope of the Meadow above and a broad run-out into the valley of Little Cottonwood Canyon at the bottom.

Collins Face is the steep run beneath the old Collins Chair, straight above the snowflake on the Alta office building. Note the light covered mine dumps from the South Hecla Mine.
