Names of Chutes and Lines on DeMoisy at Snowbasin

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

I am trying to figure out how many of these lines and chutes have their own name. This is the north face of DeMoisy Peak at Snowbasin. I think that some of these might be combined by name but I want to know for sure. Also, am I missing any lines with names on this face?

Thanks

Always wanted to try Lone Tree.  It just looks awesome from below.

 

Welcome to EpicSki, Pharmaski.  You got an answer from the resident expert on Snowbasin.

Perfect, I skied down Y-Chute  (http://youtu.be/SAeYPW21kYg) and didn't know what to call it but now I do.

Thanks, this helps a lot!

Besides a belay, I don't think there is a way into that chute, at least not from the top.  I would bet that patrol has a name for it but I don't know what it is.

I have not skied Y-chute with that little snow.  I think it would be filled in much better had it (along with Arrowhead) not slid to the ground earlier this season.  There are more chutes with difficult/sketchy entries further lookers left from your picture. 

 

Here is one from last week, I was told the name, but can't remember:

 

& here is one looking down Hidden Chute from last year:

It's called topless. You access it from hidden chute and getting into the very top requires a little bit of air. You can miss the top 20 feet or so by scooting in from under a rock of the skiers right of hidden.

Here's a video featuring Jim Forster skiing some of the runs off of the very top of Snowbasin.  The video is called THE WORLD OPENS UP and it's currently in competition in the Warren Miller Hometown Hill Competition on the Warren Miller Facebook page.  If you like it, then cast a vote for it, but the voting for this first round ends at midnight this Tuesday.

 

Here's the tiny url to the Warren Miller contest page:  http://bit.ly/1gLGoGn

I just tried the tiny url and it worked for me.  The other way would be to go the Warren Miller FB page and click the video contest banner.  It's a great video.

It looks like the Warren Miller Video Competition is now on Round 2, and the Snowbasin video featuring Jim Forster is again up for votes -- he's down to the final 8 videos in the region and this round will cut the field down to 4 videos.

 

As I posted in the first round, the video is called THE WORLD OPENS UP and if you like it, then cast a vote for it, but the voting for this round ends at midnight this Tuesday.
