Olympic Trees


Lake Tahoe

A good series of narrow, tree line chutes at the bottom of Chamoix. There are many ways to enter. If you find a small chute at the top of the "Gully" part of Olympic, enter from there (were the dead tree is.)

From a low point of 2.5 km to the maximum altitude of 2.6 km, the route covers 338 m, 13 vertical metres of ascent and 85 vertical metres of descent. It's graded 4.2 and Labande grade 4.


On a powder day, this run can be awesome. There are some small to medium cliff that should be jumped on a powder day. This line holds very nice snow.
