To me it's entirely conditions-dependent.  I don't care how "must-do" a run is, it's going to suck if it's bulletproof.  And I don't care how lame a run is, it's going to be a ball with fresh powder.

 

That said, loads o' fun with soft snow:  The Alleys at A-Basin.  Nicely spaced trees, steepish pitch, large fun.  Trees and stumps and rocks and bumps...  :D


Don't forget wind.  Mt Rose can have some brutal wind.  Still some very nice terrain, eh?

I won't be putting anything with the word "hospital" in the name on my bucket list, thank you very much. biggrin.gif

some of these "runs" are a one crux line, dropping in with mandatory air. then there is not a whole lot more of the run left. don't know if that constitutes a "run of a lifetime", more a gut-check followed by a big smile if you land it.

Yep, if you like bumps then Outhouse & Al's Run. Top to bottom those if you can. Also Gunbarrel as it appears as if you miss one of those bumps, you are going to end up in Lake Tahoe.

The most iconic slope listed that I skied was Tuckerman's Ravine.  Did it with a hangover from the Ski Instructors Party the night before.  Needless to say we did not get an early start and only had time to hike up and do the face once.  I want to go back and do it from the top before I turn 60.  But I can say I "Tucked the Tuck", even though it was not straight down.

Just came back from a amazing day at pico and i would add the old poma lift-line to the list.

There is nothing as steep and as narrow as that in the east.

A true challenge
