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]
Geneva Basin was a ski resort from 1963-1984, so there is a lot of open terrain up there. there are no more towers, and some of the vegetation has started to grow back, but for the most part this is a nice quite place to go spend the day backcountry skiing. It is a great spot for beginner backcountry skiers, as well as those just looking to get out and explore their own back yards.
How to Get There
Take I-70 West to Georgetown, then head through the town and up Guanella Pass Road. The old resort is 6 miles from Georgetown
