Description

Little Chute can only be accessed when Alta ski patrol has it OPEN, which isn't very often. Little Chute, located skiers right of Main Chute, is a skinny couloir that runs from the top of Mount Baldy. Only drop into Little Chute when it is open -a sign will let you know. The entrance is steep, exposed and usually rocky. Once in the couloir, you will find great turns and an exciting run.
