Description

The Beav has many unknown sidecountry routes that feel more authentic, than say VAIL. Perhaps the steep gradient, dense trees, and lower skier activity speaks to this. The Stone Creek Chutes is probably the best representation of this free form variable terrain feeling that provokes the whimsical snow spirit within. These chutes are monitored and tested by patrol. Not quite as technical as the above chutes, the lower section affords more mild and consistent tree terrain to ramble through. The face can get warm so hit it on colder days. After the short steep pitch, enjoy the floating/rambling upwellings of the gully run out that wraps you around to the Rose Bowl Lift towards the bottom.
