Description

K9 Chute is a long, uninterrupted chute that starts right off the top of the chair to the South. It gets hit pretty hard, but can have some great bumps. On a sunny corn day, K9 is awesome. It will soften up early and stay great most of the day. K9 doesn't get all sluffed out on a powder day, because it isn't that steep. There are a few trees to avoid, but other than that, it's open skiing in a subtle gully. Be sure to fade a little right towards Golden Triangle at the bottom, there are large cliffs fall line of the bottom of K9.
