Description

The Kiwi Chutes are 3 narrow, South facing chutes that break off from Close Call then drain back into it. They don't get skied too often, but all run out onto a traverse, so be careful. They can get sluffed out by control. You can hop turn them most of the season, but may have to point it in the early months. They are only about 100ft long, and you can see them easily from the Schlasman's chair. Ski down Close Call and head left after the end of the rock wall, you'll be traversing across the tops of the Kiwi Chutes, and can see directly down them.
