Description

Suicide Chute is an east-facing couloir on Mount Superior.

When you are driving down from Alta, Suicide looks nearly-vertical.

It's a classic Wasatch line that deserves to be skied. Suicide Chute is most commonly skied in the spring when the avalanche hazard is low.

It often requires an early start so you will be at the top when the snow softens.

When the snow is hard, crampons and an ice axe (and the skills to use them) are helpful.
