Boot Chutes Map

If you're looking for something a little more interesting than a steep groomer or a mogul field for your last 100 metres down to Harmony Chair, look no further than the Boot Chutes, which offers gladed skiing which starts open and slowly filters tighter towards the bottom (and left). Because of the trees, the snow can often be good in here but with lots of traffic the chutes can end up skiing like a bike trail with bumps and burms (which is also very fun! )

Description

Traversing left from the top of Lower McConkeys is your best way in, and the chutes spit you out further down, with only 30 metres of bumps left to take on before returning to Harmony 6.

Difficulty

Moderate

Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.

Low Exposure (E1)
