Description

Turbinator (incorrectly called Terminator by many) is a difficult chute on the West Basin Ridge between Stauffenberg Trib and Zdarsky.

The top section is very much like Stauffy Trib - rocky and steep.

After what is an obvious middle spot, it narrows as it drops through the trees.

There's a tight choke that starts going left then quickly turns right and there's a nice rock to pop at the bottom, if snow conditions allow.
