An open chute toward the east end of Hidden Knoll. Top is wide open with views to Mt. Russell.

Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

This north-facing slope is wider than the other Hidden Knoll couloirs, while still having a good grade to get some fun turns in. Connect with the Current Creek Drainage descent at the bottom, which you can take all the way out to the trailhead.
