Description

If your looking for something a little more exciting off Peak 5, the Rock Garden Chute is an option. From the top of the line, you see what you get, a line that goes through a bunch of rocks. Please note the cornice build up at the top and the coverage throughout the run. Make you way down through the rocks and out to the bottom staying skier's left. The snow usually skis better here than the runs to the skier's left because of the aspect.
