Description

The Therapist is a line in the Summer Trail Bowl that doesn't fill in too often.

It takes the right mix of fresh snow and wind to blow in the gulley.

It can be blown out all season, then fill in overnight with just the right storm.

The chute itself is 700 feet long with a huge rock wall to your right and wind wave to the left.

Be mindful of wind loading on this feature while you are descending.

The Therapist is pretty consistently wide, about 15 feet until you reach the exit, where it chokes to about 5 feet.

The run out doesn't always have a deep snowpack, so tread lightly as you come out of the chute and into the bowl.

Either boot directly up the line, or ski down to it along the East ridge from Sacajawea Peak.
