SE Chute Arrowhead Bowl Map

The South-east chute in the back of Arrowhead is a fast, direct way to gain the ridge and the top of Arrowhead Peak. It’s a fun option for a moderately steep run in sunny snow as well. On warm days, watch out for rollerballs coming down off the walls to the right and left of you - this isn’t a good place to be when the rocks are shedding.
