Skiing at Sunshine Village at Goats Eye. We were lucky to get a sunny day to revisit the South Side Chutes. This time we were more adventurous and went across the top all the way to the boundary line into Saddledome. I may have got some of the names wrong on the pictures as it is difficult to know which chute you are at against the trail map. The snow was so good we went back for another run. There is some side stepping to get high enough to pass over the top of some of the rock bands to get though. The pictures and the videos do not give justice to the steepness at the begging of these runs. On the ski app from the phone it read 43 degrees at the steepest. We went down Stampede Chute on another visit and it was equally as good as Saddledome.
