The ending of Secret Shoulder can be a bit tame but if you want to spice things up, these trio of chutes chutes are a great way to do this. Head skiers' left from the Secret Shoulder run-out. All 3 chutes are challenging. The chute furthest skiers' left is by far the most challenging of the three. It starts out decently mellow but quickly becomes an unforgivably steep line with room for error. This chute is also a bit more challenging to find than the other two and is really meant for extreme skiers looking for a stupidly steep high-consequence chute. The other two lines are a lot more enjoyable for a very confident expert skier (the middle chute is probably a bit steeper than the one furthest lookers' left, however). These are both decently narrow due to the trees, but are a great way to finish a great run in the Secret Bowl Area. This is also a much more direct route to the Deadwood Glades run-out rather than going all the way around via the main shoulder route.



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