Frazier Skin Out Chute Map

This chute is great for a first run down into Frazier Basin. It is only about 300 feet long, but at least 100 feet wide. At the top, it's about 35 degrees, but then mellows out as you get further down. This is the main shot to set your track back up and out at the end of the day.
