Magic Carpet Map

This is a very demanding chute located in between Round Top Bowl and The Sister I Gullies. It starts off wide open (similar to Round Top Bowl) but quickly funnels into a dangerously narrow chute that could require straightlining depending on conditions. This merges onto the lower straightline of Round Top Bowl. Magic Carpet can essentially be thought of as a more complex entry into Round Top Bowl



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

High Exposure (E3)
