Summit County's Steepest Slope? - Page 2

post #31 of 33

So, for fun, because of course I have nothing better to do the Friday night before Christmas... I made these (possibly inaccurate) maps of other areas known to be steep.

C.J.s tops out by my measurement at about 38 degrees :

Hey @segbrown, nice maps!  Did you see the multi-color overlay option in hillmap.com

 

Maybe it's just me, but I think those maps are much prettier! 

 

A-basin (note the Beavers expansion is going to be sweet!):

 

Breck:

 

It's amazing how those maps highlight the good stuff.  

 

Here's my definition of the scale:

 

Yellow: steep enough to be really fun.

Red: steep enough to get your attention.

Purple: steep enough to put a lump in your throat.

 

I think you could pull up one of those maps for any ski area and know right where to go for the goods.
