Heh. There are probably as many names for that chute as there are groups that have skied it. One of the charming (I think) things about SF area bc skiing is that there really aren't accepted names for each chute and slope. The only one I can think of is the main Nambé chute.

There has been some discussion here a while back about trying to name the local shots, but people that had (different) names for them already kind of liked their names.

This picture by JohnS came up during one of those discussions:

Those are as close to accepted names as there are, but I’ve heard them called other names pretty often.

Except Heaven(‘s) Hill. That one is pretty universal.
