FATMAP difficulty grade
The El Cap gate accesses the steepest, longest section of the chutes.
To avoid the mainstream rush and find some privacy, go straight through the gate and you’ll be at the top of the El Cap.
Angle right into the 45+ degree Captivator – this is the only entrance.
Unlike the saddle and El Cap, Captivator is not a dished-out natural half-pipe; it’s more level and it gets tight through the trees (about four ski-lengths wide) before opening up at the bottom.
