“A steep and gnarly south-facing chute.”— J. Bella
Once on the ridge above the chute, start riding down through mixed conifer and aspen trees and stay right; this is important if you go left there's a similar looking couloir that cliffs out and is not rideable. If you're uncertain whether you're on the right line, keep going right into an aspen glade. Looking at this area from across the valley, this glade looks like a diamond.
When you're on the proper route, find your way down to where the trees open up and the chute begins, skier's left of the aspen glade where the rock outcrop starts. There are scattered scrub oaks and willows, with open lines among the brush. Cliffs line the top half then it opens up into an apron with aspen trees dispersed across the slope. Ride the apron through the aspens, into the pine forest where the terrain levels out. Cross this flat area and drop through the trees back to the trail.
