Description

The first smaller chute that you come to when traversing into the Spiney Chute area. This chute goes through clean but can be peppered with rocks and trees - take caution when the snowpack is thin. The run out connects with the popular Sidewinder run so pay attention to skier traffic if exiting the chute with speed. Make sure that you scope the Spiney Chute area before you drop in, some of the lines DO NOT go through.
