The first and least steep option from the skin up Moonlight Bowl traversing east back toward Hidden Knoll.

Zander Göpfert
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

With grades at or below 35 degrees, this first option is the most mellow of the Hidden Knoll chutes. Fairly short but very easy to lap. Be aware of a large boulder at the base of the chute as high winds can create a "boulder well" around the boulder that would be dangerous to ski near or on a potential slide path.

Lots of terrain to choose from with each chute from right to left (west to east) getting progressively tighter and steeper. (Photo taken closer to Hidden Knoll than location shows).
