Possible Gully at Snowmass, complete with a sign at the top that says unless you know how to straightline the drop-in and can self-arrest you have no business there.

Impossible Gully is right next to it.

If I ever get to Sunday River, I'm gonna ski Monday Mourning.

My favorites are R.T.S at Willamette Valley because I always think Real Tough S%$#. I don't know if that is what it means though.

Suicide at Sunrise ski park because it's quick and to the point.

All the old hell themed runs at Purgatory are just cool names too.

Something tells me that my husband would be fond of that particular slope!

When I taught my girlfriend to ski at Crystal mountain, Michigan...she took one look at the trail map and said "I'm NOT going to be skiing anything called, Nose Dive, Gorge, Thor, or Buck!!!!!"

She did, however master Giggles, and Easy Street

Back in the 80's (when all skis were skinny), my bro'-in-law & I decided to go under the ropes that forbade us from skiing underneath the lift at Elk. This is where all the ungroomed, man-made snow had blown. I was 250+ lb and he was pushing 300. We sank into this man-made fluff up to our thighs and fell over on our faces. (Remember, skinny 80's skis, two overweight men.) My 120# first wife skipped lightly past us over the snow like "an elf tip-toeing across a marshmallow ice cream cake."


10 minutes later, after we had extricated ourselves, we were the first to name this trail:

Upper Moron.

Actually,

My favorite name for a run is "ski area boundry". There is always a nice patroller to meet you at the bottom to discuss your form and technique.

Cleavage - Sunshine: Run between to rounded peaks
Rumble - Sugarbush, great ride!
Paradise - Again Sugarbush - When you experience this run after a good dump of fresh snow first thing in the morning with the sun rising, it will take your breath away. I know!

First one that came to mind was Drunken Frenchman at Mary Jane.... I'll second that.

Banana Funnel at Crested Butte

Thirsty Vampire at Mt. Bohemia

Agony at Sunday River
It's a top to bottom bump run with bumps the size of buried VW beetles.
If you can ski it top to bottom non-stop you'll see that it's aptly named.

AMF (Adios... you figure it out) at Snowmass.

Bridger has some awesome names.

Sixth Grade Virgin, a very apt name for what is probably the tightest narrowest chute in any resorts in bounds terrain.

Some others are Deviated Septum, Nasal Cavity, Sometimes A Possible Notion, Psychopath, Prince of Darkness, and Bombs Away.

Muerte at Ski Santa Fe

I thought Powder Face at Mount Washington BC was aptly named.

My son thought "stretcher" at Mount St. Louis Moonstone was a good name. It is one of their steeper runs, and my son and his friend informed there were moguls on it, though I didn't think they were moguls, maybe some small bumps had grown on it. At first I didn't get the meaning, thinking it would "stretch" their abilities, but then my son explained "stretcher" as in what they would use to carry you off of it on. I guess it's different from a beginner's perspective.

So I'm waiting for someone to say:

I always see a trail named 'No Tree Skiing'. It's conveniently placed between the bigger, wide-open trails. And several ski areas seem to have have a run named this way.

Hey Ex-coal . . . Our 450# of protoplasm were responsible for the name change.
