Description

Steep rocky chutes that drop South from the Baldy boot pack. Peer down them next to the CLOSED sign while hiking toward Baldy. Every once in a while, Snowbird will open these chutes and they are very fun to ski in the right conditions. Because they are south facing, they can often have poor snow conditions.

Difficulty

Severe

Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.

Medium Exposure (E2)

2 out of 4

As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Remoteness

2 out of 4

Away from help but easily accessed.
