Avalanche risk for Nov 26, 2017: Low

Generally safe avalanche conditions. Watch for unstable snow on isolated terrain features. Natural and human-triggered avalanches unlikely.

The Bombay Chute is a little wider than some of the other Wolverine Chutes.

Asher Margolies
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Overview

The Bombay Chute is a little wider than some of the other Wolverine Chutes (well, it is significantly wider than its neighbor to the west, Tips & Tails). It has a mild dogleg to the left about halfway down that isn't noticeable in this photo, but you'll see it from the top. Acknowledging the idiosyncrasies of measuring the angle of snow, Bombay averages a consistent 43°.

Description

Follow the directions to the top of Patsey Marley from the Grizzly Gulch trailhead. Then head toward Mount Wolverine along the rim of the cirque while being wary of cornices. You'll pass a small, steep, unnamed chute, the wide Huge Chute, the narrow Tips and Tails, and then arrive at the top of Bombay. It has a slightly wider entrance and a bend to the left about halfway down. Have fun!
