Before I comment, full disclosure:

I'm an intermediate rider, I like riding "steep" Michigan blacks and have zero experience with anything out west yet or chutes. So I might be talking out of my ass here.

As he approached and entered the chute I'd probably handle it the way he did. Feel my way through it and make it out. But once he cleared the chute he was wide open and really could have opened up the throttle and had some sweet turns.

I would have pointed my nose down and had some fun with that, the snow looked great.
