Birthday Chutes

The Birthday Chutes on Mt Plewman

Steve and Jordy – The view of the Birthday Chutes from Murphy Ck.

With still few options on the bike trails, Steve, Jordy and I checked out the skiing conditions in the Birthday Chutes on Mt Plewman. A firm Spring snow-pack made for easy traveling through the big trees up Murphy Ck, up the headwall, and the corniced ridge to the summit. The snow in the chutes hadn’t quite consolidated into corn and the re-frozen sluff was a little tricky in places, but we were cruising on velvet on the open middle elevation slopes. It was a bit sticky in the trees, but still fun skiing all the way back to the truck.

I’ve finally worked out how to embed videos in this site. Here’s Jordy dropping in off the top.
