Description

Form the parking lot at the summit of Berthoud pass, skin all the way up the Mainline Approach. Start climbing the east face of Mt. Russell, the North Chutes open up just below the summit. There are a few options from here, drop into the largest of the chutes. There will be a large cliff band skiers right as you drop in about half way down, and then the run will open up.
