. Actually the last time I skied Camelback was the first time I skied with people from EpicSki .
Back in the day, Margie's, Asp and Hump were about as Gnar as it got in Pa. skiing, on skinny skis. Margies had a spot where there was only one turn available, it was a sheet of ice, and, anyone who could ski had my respect. Yup, they've all been regraded and widened, still the steepest runs in eastern Pa., but, nowhere near what they were. I do like vsirin's description above, the lady called this one right, especially at Camelback's very narrow runs.

If you had 10x the number of other skiers, passed people going down Cliffhanger in wedges, had plenty of fallen boarders ever 100 yards, and threw in a few first time skiers straighlining because they hadn't learned to turn yet, you would have captured the essence of Pocono skiing.
