Trolley Chute Map

Trolley Chute is a standard for most people coming down Ravine South, heading towards Slushman's Ravine. It holds great, cold snow and sometimes can get wind buffed smooth. There usually aren't huge moguls, but this zone does get skied a lot. It is about a 200ft chute that runs fall line down to just above the main gut of Slushman's Ravine. Ski down Ravine South, looking left, and find the entrance as you start to see the fall line slope roll over. At the bottom of Trolley, you can head fall line down the gut of the Ravine, or head North on a well travelled traverse that takes you across the top of trap door and into lower Close Call. This traverse is the easiest way out, and is a highly recommended exit early season.
