Description

There is a small band of cliffs on the left side of Jersey Cream Wall, just below the Rendezvous Restaurant, locally known as Cafe Wall. To access Cafe Chute ski cautiously past the 'cliff' signage and negotiate your way diagonally left through some rocks. A few cliffs are droppable here on powder days, just make sure you stomp the landing because an audience on Jersey Cream Express will be watching you! Pick up the blue run, and make your way back to Jersey Cream.
