Description

Stimulus Package is a very challenging area for even the most experienced Bridger skiers. It consists of steep, fluty, chutes and spines with lots of rocks. It is really hard to find clean ways through on even the deepest years. It should not be attempted unless you are very confident in your abilities. It will always hold nice cold powder, but can get sluffed out by ski patrol. Watch out for facets around the rocks. Head down the Ravine South and keep skiing past Trolley Chute and a little left of fall line. You will probably be skiing untouched powder, enjoy it while it lasts. Soon you'll be on top of a very complex entrance into a narrow chute. Make your way down however you can. Once in the chute, you can hop turn or point your way out of it into the apron between Schlasman's Ravine and Diagonal.
