OK Chute

Cam – OK Mountain.

Another cold clear windless morning. Cam and I dropped a car, rode the lift, and headed out to ski the obvious chute on the East face of OK Mountain.

Cam – OK Chute (Rossland in the background).

It’s such a beautiful line down the OK chute, though I only seem to ski it once per year. It funnels through dramatic cliffs and can sometimes hold great quality snow (we had powder in the chute today). It’s chokes out with Alder about a third of the way down (a worthy clearing project I talk about acccomplishing at some point) but we’ve found a mostly clear line that connects adjacent ridgelines for a continous descent to the cascade highway.
