North Chute

Tree chute, very steep, the top part when you are traversing to the descent is very meadow skippy but the second you are in the chute it is a tight and steep tree chute.  It's probably about 500' long once you are in the chute proper,  If you manage to get first tracks in it, your in for a pretty incredible ski.  Once you ski the chute ski out towards skiers left through some low angle trees to the road cut.  NOTE: this pull out is probably the single most annoying place at berthoud pass to catch a ride from.  My advice-cross to the other side of the road and walk up the hill aways (assuming the side is plowed).  If you ski out towards the right it will take you to 7 mile, which is a very long low angle ski down to Winter Park.

How To Get There

Start from the Grizzly Reservoir trailhead, at 10560 ft.
To access the trailhead from Colorado 82 (between Independence Pass and Aspen), go 6.4 miles on a dirt road (Lincoln Creek Road). Passenger cars can make it but you will probably scrape in a few spots. The trailhead is 0.3 mile after the dam. Hike and/or skin over easy terrain 3.2 miles to Grizzly Lake at 12,500 ft. The North Coulior is above the lake to the right of the first most obvious line.
