A wide open chute from Mt. Morrison ridge.

Description

From the ridge connecting Mini Morrison and Mt. Morrison, ski down the chute. Skied corn down this in spring as late as 4 PM! It looks like it could hold some powder earlier in season, as I found some powder in the southern areas, which rarely get sun. Be careful! There are lots of rock falls near the sides, evidence of wet slide avalanches, and decent-sized cornices on the steep section near the start.

You likely will have to skin or boot pack out on either the north or south trail back to the trailhead.
