Description

A fun alternative to Chute The Moon or Turkey Chute, this couloir adds a little pucker factor with a sporty entrance, steeper skiing, and a narrower line that meets up with the bottom section of Chute the Moon.

Approach via Twenty-Five Short and take obvious ramp Northeast of the entrance to Chute The Moon.
