Description

Slot is a very steep tree run containing cliffs and rocks near the Staircase section of the North Face. It is accessed from the skier's left of the Picture Perfect Glades, or The Edge if you're looking for a spicier way there. The namesake move, the Slot, is an hourglass shaped choke that requires some airtime on lower snow years. Negotiate the trees and rocks down to the Slot Rocks, where large cliffs and steep chutes await you. Committed skiers only.
