FATMAP difficulty grade
Shale Shot is a steep chute off of Rip's.
It is an open chute in between two parts of Rip's Trees.
Shale Shot has high avalanche danger and is not commonly patrolled like in resort terrain.
Make sure to have your gear and a partner before skiing the Shale Shot.
I also suggest checking out with patrol before skiing to make sure they write your name down and to make sure you are in the clear.
