This is actually something that I was thinking awhile back would be really cool for Epic Skiers to do...
We could put up a running thread that would list frequently-skied runs at all sorts of resorts. Along with the run we could list the slope DEGREES
(percents aren't much use to me because no one understands any of them except 100%).
Are there enough of us out here who own inclinometers who would be willing to take a few measurements on some well-know runs and post them on an ongoing basis? It would have to be the honor system with ACTUAL readings taken with an ACTUAL inclinometer because very, very few people are able to eyeball a slope with any degree (no pun intended) of accuracy.
I would be happy to start by posting some of Jackson's more popular runs once the lifts open.
Whaddaya say, some of you other resort denizens? This is something that would be very interesting to compile and I've never seen a very good list with this kind of information.
