Comments
When exiting skiers right off of main days there are several little short, steep chutes that feed to the bench where the heli often picks up. My usual practice has been to ski cut them before totally committing to them because they seem to run a lot with storm snow. Today was no exception but what was notable was that it broke down to the rocks making me think it was a repeater due to really shallow depth and will likely repeat again or mess up your skis, so be careful out there! Sorry for no photo, had a bus to catch.
