Description

Diagonal is the wider of a pair of North facing chutes, Diagonal and Parallel. It holds great cold snow, but gets skied often. There are never bumps in here, but it may be slipped out. You may encounter rocks at the very top, especially early in the season. Ski down the lift line or Slushman's Face to get here. Just after the steep rocky section, head hard left to get to Diagonal. It will be the first chute you come to. On your exit, you can head left to under Slushman's Ravine, fall line, through a rocky treed area, or right to under Jaws 1.
