Fairy Lake Chutes Map

The Fairy Lake Chutes are an easily accessed area directly above Fairy Lake. They are 4-600 feet long and have lots of options for variations. Some are tight and steep, some have nice side airs. Boot directly up them, or set a skin track up the ridge (looker's left) to make multiple laps. Ski one of the Lake Chutes on your way back to the trailhead after skiing the Great One for another great run. These North facing shots hold snow much of the year.
