What's in this Area?
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]
Geissler offers a couple of lines to ski, with options for other easily connected descents in the area.
How to Get There
There are a couple of ways to approach Geissler, by either skinning up from the west side of Highway 82 up the valley, or up the continental divide, descend Twining, and then head up to Giessler. This mountain is a two peaked mountain, with Giessler West and East.
