Description

Zero Chute can be skied several ways, but the most popular way to ski it is by dropping off the cornice into the center of the zero shaped rock garden, and then jumping out of it. After you do that, you will be skiing very fast so try your best to keep your control out of the chute. Be aware of avalanche debris, and small rocks as you are coming out of the chute. Other options to ski it include picking your way through the rocks and jumping over the rock garden to your skier's left. After that, you will be at the bottom.
