Need to Know

Avalanche terrain.

Description

The Taos backcountry's sweetest low hanging fruit. Finding a route to the top can be tricky. With a stable snowpack, climbing in the trees adjacent to the chute is possible, but the safest route is via the Bull of the Woods to Wheeler Peak ridge. The runout crosses the Williams Lake Trail.

History & Background

This chute sits right along the Carson National Forest boundary.
