Nice. For the snowfield part you were often about where I was a day before. I had looked at the Chute both on approach and from the top and didn't think it would go without a lot of threading through the rocks (hadn't seen any tracks down it either, I guess nobody wanted to be the first P-Tex Poodle). Your video didn't exactly change my mind about the rocks, but the turns on the quarterpipe windlip did look nice. What about getting through the lower angle moraine part, had enough snow collected in the lee?

After the rocky sections on the top we where able to ski the rest of the way out.  Just enough on the lee...We skinned out earlier than usual cause the lower moraine part was full of sharks  Roll Eyes 

Here are a few pics...

Nice! I really wouldn't have guessed that the chute would be in right now.

Thanks for showing a glimpse of freedom to an officedweller!

You have a wonderful disregard for rocks!  You and my skiing partner need to get together, he has no fear of them as well!
