Description

This rarely skied, curvy avalanche path runs through the forest tucked between the Peace Chute and Middle Finger. It's not as steep as the other chutes and opens up into some amazing old growth glades before running onto the Williams Lake Trail.

It is tougher to get to than the other chutes in this area.
