Description

Bailout is a relatively wide North facer that gets skied often, but holds chalky snow all season. It can get small bumps due to all the traffic. Sometimes Bailout will get buffed out by the wind, making it really smooth and chalky. It is straightforward, and doesn't have and airs or obstructions. Bailout hardly ever gets sluffed out by control. Ski down the Shlushan's lift line past the Jaws Chutes, heading left after the third rocky area, or just before it flattens out. You'll have a 500ft moderately steep chute to ski down.
