A killer coloir close to the road.

The Chinook Pass Road (410) is closed in winter, check the WDOT website for up to date info.

Description

This is a sweet chute that is a long trek from either Crystal Mountain Resort, or a very short tour from the road. It is not obvious from the road, but once at the peak, the Couloir becomes apparent. Once in the chute, make sure to exit right (skiers) and maintain elevation in order to avoid putting on skins again to get to the car.

The couloir is actually to the NW of sheep lake, not the SW as shown on the map. Jan 18, 2018
