A Chute

A Chute is the Easternmost of the A-B-C- Chutes. Triple A Couloir is off to the skier's right--a much more dangerous zone. The A-Chute itself is very dangerous, carries high levels of avalanche risk, and exits into Granite Canyon, where you'll have to pass under countless other slide paths on your way out including the exit from Triple A. These chutes are known for their wind slab formation, which can exist anywhere down the chute and surprise you with a deadly avalanche. Never drop into a zone in the backcountry when other people are still in it down below you. If you see fresh tracks going in, you should wait until you know that everyone is out of the chute. Either that, or choose another objective.
