Description

Unc Farm is a Southeast facing, steep, rocky area. Usually people go through here on their way towards lower Boundary Chute. There are a couple gnarly options if you feel like getting after it. It gets sun affected, and skied a lot. It doesn't get super sluffed out, but it's not really one direct line. Head left from the middle of Close Call, just beneath the Kiwi Chutes. You will have a couple steep turns before an obvious lane to the left, taking you towards Boundary. You can head right, fighting the fall line to an awesome 10-20ft air off a spine. Further right of this spine, there is a narrow sneak through the rocks and back towards Close Call. If you ski fall line from the top of Unc Farm, there is a tight, rocky chute to a 5-10ft air. This air puts you into a rarely skied mini apron, but watch out for the heat vents in the rocks just before the traverse.
