Description

These chutes are further skiers left down the west ridge of Lone Mountain. These are technical steep chutes, many of the shots do go through, some require a bit of air others are clean. It is best to scout your line from the bottom of the Lone Lake area and then decide the line you are comfortable with. Most of the time there is a required side step over rock and in some of these you enter one chute and then traverse into another. Be sure to follow avalanche conditions for the week and best to go with someone familiar with the area. This is back country and not controlled especially susceptible to cornice build up and wind loading. These massive cornices can form over 1,000ft cliffs that drop to the basin floor. There are no great/safe stopping points, ski this run top to bottom and one at a time. You will finish in near the lake, but do not stop in any place that looks like a slide path. At the bottom there is a boot pack skiers right which will take you back to Moonlight Basin. Understand at the top of the boot pack you are still in the back country and when you ski out there are slopes that are capable of sliding remain aware and use good judgment.
