Description

Sentinel is a tree chute next to Hanging Meadow. It has a good, long, consistent pitch that reaches roughly 40 degrees. When the snow is good here, it is very fun. However, the wind can have a drastic effect on this line because, as a chute, the trees are more open and offer less protection. It is also a fairly avalanche prone area, so be careful if you choose to ski here.
