Massive Range - Alberta - Canada
Banff National Park

For information to access the starting point for Northern Chutes, on Healy 1, please see the Lost Horse Creek ski zone page.

Under the often large cornice on the north aspect of Healy 1 you will find a number of rocky chutes. The snow here can be slightly different than the North Bowl run to the skier's right and getting caught in even a small avalanche here can have serious outcomes.

From camp head south-east for about 1.5kms below Healy 1 and 2 peaks where you will find a slightly benched ridge to the climber's left of the bowl feature. Skin up the ridge and onward to the summit. From the summit you have a few options to get into the chutes. You can down ski the very steep convex roll beside the cornice, you can traverse from further skier's right into the area or you can cut an big chuck of cornice off for direct access. Do not underestimate the size of these cornices if you decide to gain direct access.
