Anthracites

These runs listed here in the Anthracite Range all share the same ridge and all face North. Coming up the East Ridge, you'll first hit Seven Bowl, which offers a good stretch of moderately pitched terrain. 1/5 of a mile West of that are Rock and Tree Chutes, which are small chutes through the trees. The next run along the ridge is Big Chute, which is a big obvious avalanche slide path. Just West of that is another chute called Ziggins which faces more Northeast and is a little trickier to access. All of this terrain poses significant avalanche danger.
