Description

This steep chute is located just skier's right of Stiletto in the Buckskin area. To access it, take Sheer Bliss to the Buck Skin entrance on skiers right. Then stay hard skier's left until you get to the second to last chute, just skier's right of Stiletto. It starts out a little wider then gets really narrow, about 5-10 feet wide. You need to make a sharp turn to the right. After making that sharp turn you can stay skier's right and it will take you to an open field where you can really open it up. This is an amazing run on a powder day. Or you can head skier's left and jump off a big around around 15ft high. This is a technical chute but not quite as difficult as Stiletto. Making the sharp right turn in the choke is very challenging.
