    Dude - i have no idea what that means...

    I'm serious interested in these pictures - all I've ever seen from Alta is lame posing in skied off bowls or high chutes... Never any gnarly low mountain chutes..

    And i have a friend who's in Utah right now. Would love to point him in that direction if it's good right now.

    The chute had very good snow..as its never skied much..the chute itself wasn't that hard..if you like 40 degree doglegs..it was getting to it and into it that was the tough part....mistakes can be fatal....you want a insane chute...try the little chute and the dogleg chute on Baldy...52 degrees at the top...that was the scariest thing I have ever done....almost killed one of our group when her skied popped off at the dogleg...long ride down for her face first...very scary....

    And this vid still does not show how insane the line is....
    the tree at the end..large safety meeting held there...much needed..

    It was the first time the snow was right at my back when I was standing up straight...I sideslipped for a while..to scared to try and turn in something that narrow...once it opened up a bit I was able to...I wouldn't do it again..would like to do main chute which is to the right. If you're friend wants gnarly chutes..everything off the supreme chair is pretty hairy..just don't cliff out!


    This is off the supreme...

    This is what we cliffed out on...we had to tiptoe (hard to do with skis) around the tree up there in the middle....one of the more scary moments of a trip a few years ago...
