Does the SW Chute go this time of year? At least to some degree?

I skied it in September one year. It wasn't really pleasant. Deep runnels. It was a little bit scary. Snow extended to the bottom of the chutes and we walked back to the car first above and then along the round the mountain trail. The walk was fine.

Not sure I would choose to do it again that late.

It is certainly doable, but probably not very pleasant. The snowpack is looking pretty thin near the bottom.

Here are a few photos from 10/6:
