Description

A tight steep slot through the trees skiers right of the Gad 2 lift. It's pretty easy to find if you stay just skiers right in the trees the terrain will naturally funnel you into the small "chute." Because the terrain naturally funnels you into the chute, if you stay just outside of it in the trees you can find less traveled snow with more options than the bumpy and boney chute.
