Analysing terrain data
The Crags is an area of formally out of bounds skiing that is technical and steep.
You must access the area by hiking to the top of Casper Bowl and traversing beyond the bowl and past a short sidestepping section until you are around the corner.
The corner indicates indicates the start of Shots 7,8, and 9 and traversing further will bring you to the less steep Sheridan Bowl, Limber Pine Chutes, and Dayton Bowl.
It is also possible and now possibly easier to hike to The Crags from the top of the new Teton Chair (either way you choose, be aware of the 2pm closure). The Crags is known for its rocky features.
There are little pillows and boulders to play on, but also deadly cliffs and closeout sections, so get to know the area by following someone in the know, or by slowly learning the intricacies through a cautious approach.
Working your way up the boot pack from Teton Quad past Dayton Bowl will bring you to the Limber Pine Chute.
This chute is one of a couple identical unnamed chutes that all end up converging into Sheridan Bowl.
The entrance is off of the boundary ridge is the second major opening if ascending from the Teton Quad.
This section has a few large rock outcroppings defining the borders of the chute.
If you can see all the way down the chute, you’re probably in the right spot.
This rocky area can be hazardous in early season conditions but playful in a big snow year.
Follow the chute slightly skier’s right to join with Sheridan Bowl or stay to the left for tree skiing.
