-In order to access "The Chute" you must ski down "East Ridge" if you look to skiers right though the trees you will be able to see the blue waters of Lake Tahoe in the distance.
As you reach the drop in of "The Chute" you will see that the first 1/3 is fairly steep but it will mellow out in the 2/3 while the trail stays very straight down the face of the mountain.
The last 1/3 of the trail is still steep but not as much of a pitch like the first 1/3.
As you get through the bottom you will merge into "Skid Trail'.
On a powder day, the trees to skiers left and right are some of the most fun tree skiing on the entire mountain.
