Description

Enter Silver Fox gate and head straight right. You will see the obvious Macaroni chute between the blonde rocks. Depending on the traffic, the chute can be rocky and full of weird moguls or awesome wind buffed chalk. Definitely be aware as you exit the chute of people coming in from the main Silver Fox entrance on the left.
