Description

Not the be confused with Red's Couloir, the Red Rock Chute is a mellow option that fills in early and stays very late in the season. It gets buffed out by the wind frequently, so the corn here is great. It is about 700 feet long, starting with a wide open East-southeast facing slope that turns South and steepens to a 30 feet wide 35 degree chute.
