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]
Generally pretty sunny and warm, but they get some snow in the northern part of the state. Steeper terrain and less rolling hills, but at certain times of the year there is quite a bit of backcountry skiing.
How to Get There
Go South from Colorado, and North From Texas and Mexico. You will find it...
