Not sure what it looks like below that chute, but if it's a big wide open slope I'd probably just Xavier De La Rue that chute and then lay down a big, sweeping, powder slinging turn across the slope.
Like the sound of it but... Probably not quite what you had in mind? (see pic) But even with the runout you describe, I'm not at that level anyway(relative beginner). I was just stoked to be riding something like that full stop (and to get down it cleanly). Still stoked about it now in fact Feels like a milestone in my riding.

So I'll leave you and Xavier to straightlining the steeps (for now)
