Description

After hiking the sub-peak, proceed along the edge of the bowl until you hit the ski area boundary. This will require 1 or 2 more short sections of skis off hiking. The chute is the last inbounds line heading into Powder Assault Bowl. The chute starts out narrow and steep, barely wider than a set of skis, and soon widens to open in to the bowl. Beware of rocks on the skier's left side if you exit the chute too early.
