The Ski Trail Song Game

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Just had a fun little game idea pop into my head after reading the Song Title fun thread. See how many posts we can get of ski trails/areas that are or are part of song names. Here's one to start:

 

Paradise--Coldplay

Paradise--Mad River Glen

-Eddie Money

 

Paradise by the Dashboard Lights

Maybe I was unclear with my intention. This isn't another iteration of the song title thread thread. The posts don't have to link in a chain. Its just see how many ski trails share names with songs that we can name.

Hey, we've got a Rock Garden at Squaw, too!

 

Anyway, to answer tylrwnzl's question, I did actually compile that myself.  I have a copy of the patrol map which has many of the "consensus" trail names on it.  Then, I did a little internet searching for the ones that seemed song-like.  Clearly, I had some time to kill.

Jamesj your Blue Knob song title trail reminded me of another and coincidentally the trail is High Hopes sister, Route 66 which shares its name with the song Route 66 (get your kicks) originally recorded by the king of smooth, Nat King Cole but also covered by Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones, Depeche Mode, John Meyer and Glenn Frey.
