A steep chute on Kachina's wild side.

J. Bella
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

From Kachina Peak's summit, ride south along the ridge to where it begins to level. There are three routes that are skiable, between volcanic cliffs. Drop into the first entrance and ride out onto the apron down to the Wildy Bowl Bench.
