How many of those lines are ways in?
I really haven't been up there very many times, it is a permanent closure at Snowbowl, so I've only hiked up there after the season was over. That pic seems to have a lot of snow (much more than when I ventured in), so I probably took it during the season.
I know that there are guys that could actually ski Long Chute, but I'm not one of them, you have to have abandon to point them down a 45+ degree chute that's only 6-10 feet wide, with rock walls on both sides. Those guys who could ski that certainly have some level of expertise.
