A narrow shot through the trees that holds cold powder days after a storm.

Avalanche terrain

Description

The Pinky is narrow and sheltered from sun by the tall spruce and douglas firs that border this chute. When the larger chutes have a suncrust or have been hardened by wind, this is a good bet to find powder. Usually skiable from treeline down, the bottom third of the line skirts the Ring Finger's apron and runs across the Williams Lake Trail.
