Some fun chutes above North Bowl. Can be accessed two ways. One way to going to Thunderdome and going through the North Bowl traverse gate and once your through the trees. Then simply just go down and enjoy some of that legendary North Bowl powder. The other way is either going down Top of the World or King George (aka West boundary) and you should see a gate on your right. BE AWARE, when going down this run there will be very steep sections and cliffs make sure that you are comfortable skiing this type of terrain.



Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.

Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.
