The right of the Y is a little bit more mellow, about 30-32 degrees throughout the top section. It is often very windy up at the very top, so you will want to keep a lookout for large windslabs. The left of the Y is closer to 35 at some points. You can also ski the trees in between the two chutes, which holds the snow a little bit better, but it can be steeper. Once you are in the chute, it is wide enough to make turns down (about 30 ft) but you want to be prepared to get a lot of varying snow. The whole slide path is a terrain trap, and you can see visible signs of flagging and avy activity. The trees on the sides of the gully are pretty tight. When you get to the bottom, head to the right, and you will cross under the K and into a big meadow, and then you can head to the road.[more]
