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.[more]
Upstate New York has some great skiing in the adirondaks, as well as up north. There is a lot of nordic skiing, some fun rolling meadow skipping, and some very pretty scenery. It will be cold, so be prepared! The lake effect will bring in plenty of snow just when you think it is supposed to warm up!
How to Get There
Go North and East and see what you can come up with. The farther north you go, the colder it will be. Approaches vary, as you can go right out of the car, or spend 2 weeks in the wilderness.
