I can't believe we've previously overlooked this line. It's well hidden thanks to the impressive walls, and requires a bit of effort to get to (and out of) but it's very, very worthwhile.

Amazingly awful snow on the day this was filmed, but it was a good little adventure. Such a stunning feature deserves to be skied in good conditions. We will be back.

Your videos are awesome - love the effort, commitment and fearless skiing.

Surely "because it's there" is a valid reason alone for tackling something we probably wouldn't otherwise. Very unlucky for the sogginess, worth another run in better conditions ...

Saw it on YouTube last night and gave it a like.
It's a bonkers ultra narrow chute, nice to say you've done it once, but it doesn't look like it would have been much fun.
It's not quite as narrow or steep as some others in Tassie... Most of it is just wide enough that you could ski it with pace and fluidity in good corn. The snow for the last 50m was actually quite nice, which was bizarre considering how consistently horrendous the rest of it was.
