Description

Sitting above Upper Henskin Lake, Gunbarrel makes for a fun, steep pitch.

Approach by skinning up from the top of Quicksilver lift or by traversing from Three Way Exit Chute.

Wide enough to bank turns off the sides, this chute is less intimidating than Dogleg and opens up to the bottom without cliffs.

The entrance is the steepest part but watch for loaded snow; avalanches are common.

This is true backcountry.

Carry proper equipment and always ski or ride with a partner.
