Out & Around Map

Out & Around is a very demanding line off the North Face of Deadwood Peak. You can access this run by taking the entry into NW Notch Chute, and walking up a bit skiers' right. The entry is a bit steeper and longer than the entry into Northman's Chute, however, it's not nearly as narrow and doesn't generally require any straightlining. While Out & Around isn't nearly as consistently technical as Northman's Chute, it's much more exposed and steep. A fall here is even more deadly than a fall on Northman's Chute. The run is luckily not too narrow up till its finale. Continue to traverse skiers' left by following the only discernible path that doesn't involve a huge cliff drop. The finale of the run is a really tight section through a very rocky area. However, this still isn't nearly as technical as the entry into Northman's Chute (for comparison's sake). From here, traverse far skiers' right to avoid the huge cliffs below and enjoy the phenomenal powder on the lower half of the North Face.



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