More open than the MJ chutes. As steep as Runaway, not as steep as Awe Chute (I believe that's the steepest one back there), depending on where you drop.
I'd recommend checking out the Alphabet chutes if they are open. It's the last area you can hike too, therefore the longest hike. The bowl, if you hit it right is pretty sweet in that area. Also, at the bottom of the bowl if you traverse hard left and follow the ropes that will bring you to Waterfall. Loads of pillows down that run. It's a bit of a pita to get over there though, especially if the snow is semi deep to deep. You got two sections that are fairly flat to slightly uphill. One right at the bottom of the chute just after you cut left. Generally speaking that one can be made. The second one is right before you get over the ridge to waterfall. That one can be a pain if you are the first one back there. Persevere and you will be rewarded. You might have to take your board off and boot pack a short distance to get to the out track at the bottom. It's not much. Less than 20 yards at worst. Often just a few hundred feet.
