Description

Elevator chute is a classic line at Brighton that is usually filled in by February or March. This fairly exposed run takes you from the top of Mount Millicent right into Milly Bowl. Depending on the snowpack, there can be a mandatory air at the bottom of the chute. This chute is not recommended until the snowpack is very filled in. You will also need to check in with Brighton Ski Patrol before heading out of the gate, as this run drops right above Milly bowl.
