Description

This run is a chute in the Buckskin area. To access this chute take the Buckskin entrance which is on skier's right of Sheer Bliss. Once you enter the gate stay hard left. Keep traversing hard left until you reach the last chute. It starts out pretty wide then bottle necks down to about 5ft wide at the choke just above the mandatory air. Depending on how much snow depends on how big the drop is at the end of the chute. On very big snow years the drop can only be around 2ft. On low snow years the drop can be more like 10ft. After you jump there is a wide open field with some tree islands interspersed. This run is only for the most advanced skiers and skiers who are comfortable with very tight chutes and taking some air.
