Access from Reno, NV
US 395 South

Drive Time: 1:23 min

Run 1:
I skinned up Willow Creek Road, then up the south face of Freel Peak. On the way up, I noticed a nice-looking east-facing chute. From the summit, I descended towards the chute on thin snow.
Elevation: ~631

Run 2:
I skinned up to the top of the chute and dropped in. I measured the slope angle to be 42 degrees. The snow was wind-affected powder. I continued to descend down Willow Creek below Willow Creek Road.
Elevation: ~3250

Run 3:
I skinned back up to Willow Creek Road and skied it out.
Elevation: ~350
Total Elevation: ~4231
