There are several ways to work your way down through the Chutes. You can ski both chutes via the relatively open fall lines, but you don't have to be blind to see the obvious tree runs surrounding the chutes, as well as the numerous pillow/cliff drop options.
Because most of the snow is wind-deposited, there can be some spots that are uber deep, but directly adjacent to a pillow might be only a couple of inches covering rocks. Remember this when you are thinking about going big. Also, some of the landings can be surprising flat.[more]
A lot of good stuff out here
How to Get There
take 285 S to US HWY 50, then Go West to Gunnison. Go North towards Crested Butte
Winter Camping is not really an option, but there are a couple of places that you might be able to find. In the Spring and Late fall you will be able to camp just north of town.
Poke around, you will find something
A lot of the access up here is made easier by snow mobiles, but once you are up there, then you can be skiing freely.
