Description

The Twin Chutes on the East Ridge of Nya Nuki are prominent South facing lines that can be seen on your drive up to Fairy Lake. They start from the top of the East Nya Nuki Meadow, and drop you into the Bowl Under the South Face. Head South from the top of the Meadow, staying on the ridge top. Eventually, you will find the chutes. The skier's right starts higher, and is a little tighter. Skier's Left, you'll find the larger one with a few big trees in it. These are great lines to score spring corn in, as they get plenty of sunshine. Hike to the North out of the basin, back to the 500 trail to get back to Fairy Lake.
