Description

Chute 4 is a lot like Chutes 6 and 5. It is the most direct way to get into the Dick's Cliffs. There are a few more rocks to either avoid, or jump off in the upper section above the Skier's Traverse. This section probably sees more sun as well. It is a great run for mellow turns in the gladed section. After the glades, you will have to either make your way through the small rock band, or head North over to The Ohhhh's. If you choose to pick your way through the rocks be very careful, especially early in the year. You will then have to make your way through the Dick's area down to the North Bowl Road.
