Description

This chute is a classic, medium length chute with a nice north-east exposure.

It is a true chute, narrow and steep with rock walls on either side.

At just 2 to 4 ski lengths wide it can get bumped up.

It is visible from the Headwall chair, lookers right of Hourglass Chute.

Classic Chute merges with Hourglass chute at the bottom and then Cornice Bowl which will take you down to the Mountain Run.

Classic Chute used to be side slipped for preparation and then straight lined from the top by speed skiing legends like Steve Mckinney.

Imagine that as you look down from the top....
