Personally, I think WB has some huge gnarly terrain.

They just have ridge after ridge of (OHH MT GOD) long steep runs. And drops and cliffs that are not roped off. Expert (Extreeme) skiers standing around wide eyed watching others drop into rock shutes or push of small clifts whlile they work up the courage to follow. Don't get me wrong I hate the comercial @#$%% who run Squaw Valley now, but the area is hands down the EXPERT__EXTREME) ski area on the planet. I have been to many areas North America / Swiss Alps / French Alps / Austrian Alps / BLA BLA BLA /// Every area has a run or a chute or two that is bad, But Sqauw has more of it in every shape and size. The worst thing about the place is that you can get into some very dangerous places without having to hike to it.MTT
