Fun treed chutes above Tyndall Creek.

Bryan Hird
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

A short (roughly 300ft) section of tree chutes that span from the ridge of Hallet Peak, to the middle of Dream Lake. Approach by climbing the ridge or simply snowshoeing/skinning up the chute. The main chute is about 40-45 degrees at its steepest. It is short enough to run a few laps and admire your tracks on the way out.
