Featured Descent

Arizona » Kachina Peaks

Monti Vista Chute

From the top of Agassiz the line descends to down the high alpine ridge to the east.  Just short of the saddle it descends to the skiers right towards the south and town.  This route then followes the avalanche path and drainage for long beautiful run.  At the bottom you begin meandering right towards the Leroux fire scar.  Once you hit Freidlein Prairie Road this is the end of the run and you follow the road to skiers right back to snowbowl road. This is a long run, make sure you carry a map.  It flattens out at the end and you would like to get back to snowbowl road so you can get a ride back up to the ski area.  Please also be advised that this is the ski run where the only Arizona avalanche fatality occured, be smart.

Details

Japan is an untapped resource for many backcountry users.  The terrain is great, the days are long, and the snow has been really good in the last few years.  More and more recently people are getting out skiing off-piste in japan, and there is a lot to explore still!Japan

How to Get There

Go west or east, and you will get there. You will want to fly into Tokyo for your first international flight, and then you can hop around the island.
