Featured Descent

Colorado » Front Range

Chimney Chute

The main descent is straight down the chute through two hallways, which are not super narrow.  There is a skiers right option if the main line has already been hit.  It is a great route but can have serious avalanche hazards and potential to pin a person into a rock or drag over a cliff.  Pay attention to the convexity on the top, this route can get wind loaded.  The exit is a right turn down the first creek to the parking lot.

Details

Alaska is known for its great snow, huge lines, and amazing terrain, but it is also generally quiet, not very crowded, and has a ton to offer. Some of the best helicopter accessed backcountry is in Alaska, as well as touring options

How to Get There

Get on a plane and head towards the ocean, then turn around and go up into the hills! There is some great skiing just outside of major cities
