Pinky Finger Map

The Pinky Finger is a very narrow, fast chute along the Angry Chair cliff wall. Ski down either 4th or 4.5 Finger to get here. Look left, and you'll see a cleft in the rock. The ski through can be very tight for about 15ft, or you can jump off the finger on the right at least 10ft. Keep it together as you run out past a large tree on your right, kill your speed before the South Bowl road.
