Description

These several chutes and gladed areas east of the Main Line run make up in freshies what they might lack in vertical. The chutes themselves can definitely slide, and are definite terrain traps, however the trees that flank them are excellent on, or after a powder day. Only the furthest left chute can be accessed by traversing, therefore it's unlikely you will cross the same tracks while playing in here. At the bottom users will either need to have a shuttle arranged or traverse along the road to the hitching area.
