Adams SW Chutes
« on: 08/10/12, 10:32 AM »

Heading to Adams today for SW chutes.  Anyone skied it recently with conditions advice.  I heard from Ranger that it is mostly suncups and not good right now.  Going to hope late day sun will make some corn.

Any info...?

We skied it a couple weeks ago.

> snow was alright up top with no real sun cups. once we hit 7,000 the snow quality softened and there were big cups.
> let's say c to d based on my personal history.
> we also didn't know the local's version of "the right way" to exit so we ended up just hiking back over scree.
> lame.
>  it was at least a 30 - 40 minute hike to the first patch of continuous snow to skin on.
> my guess is that hike is now at least an 1 hour out.

Here's a slightly embarrassing video we made of the trip. Have fun!
