Extending the EKG descent from the meadow, Blue Coal Chutes adds a section of flowing berms followed by root steps to a bridge and, finally, to a short rock garden. The finish is a fast, open, washboard to the bottom of Georgetown trail.
To add a lap, climb up Georgetown Climb to Matching Jerseys. A more enjoyable exit is Long Road to Ruin, back to EKG and, ultimately, the Nordic centre itself.

Note: There is no coal on this trail. To rip the seams, hit the Black Coal Chutes instead.

Access Info

Follow EKG down from the meadow area.
