Description

Bullet is great for big fast turns as it is one of the wider gullies in the saddle. As with all of them, it collects snow making it a great choice on a powder day. On the skier's right there are many options for hitting and the gully wall is perfect for playing around.

It rejoins the piste just about the Indicator Chutes which makes it a great last run back to Home Basin at the end of the day.
