It just dumped 30" and you can have your pick of one run to ski...What would it be?? 2nd Choice?

My pick would be at Jackson Hole....Rendevous Bowl to North Hoback
4000' ALL THE WAY DOWN!!!

2nd choice...as close as possible to right under the Snowbird Tram top to bottom

Goat at Stowe.

Hit Alta and 'Bird under that condition a few years back. I didn't look at trail signs. I was too busy giggling all the way down.

If I could only ski one "run", it would be Kitzbuhl's Hahnenkamm, and I don't care if it snowed or not. If not limited to a run I might also consider Lucky's favourite run "Wherever the chopper is taking me, especially in Canada"

That's a good choice and most likely my first. I think second would be High Rustler at Alta (just for the nostalgia.)

That first bit is quite steep... I last skied that in '89 1 day after a poor Canadian woman died on it. Apparently, due to the icy conditions at the top she removed her skis and tried to walk down that first pitch

I really enjoyed Val Gardina's downhill course as well... those rollers and a waiter at the bottom to take our lunch order

Wilbere Bowl at Snowbird. It's a fall line run ranging from 30-40 degrees sustained for about 2000 vertical feet.

A definate must-hit first run on a big pow day in LCC.

Blue Ox at Vail.

Skied it last year at 9am on a Sat morning after a Friday grooming, and an overnight snow of 18in. Got 2 laps in before anyone else caught on.

Starr at Stowe. A few too many years back I got 1st tracks after a 14" 'dump' and it was absolute heaven. I like the fall line on Starr better than the Goat's multiples.

I would ski the Starr anytime. Starr is best served ICEY!?! :

Whiteout at Steamboat. Because it's the first bump run off the Gondola to the left. Perfect pitch and always deep because most people avoid a bump run for their first run of the day.

Nothing like Primrose Path off of the tram at Snowbird. Drop down and ski 1000 ft moguls without a break or change in pitch! Esp with a few inches of surprise snow first thing in the morning.

Whiteout is a great bump run but if I were at the "Boat"....Closet to Shadows OR Shadows all the way down would be my first choices. I lived in Steamboat for 3 years and know every inch of that mountain so speak from experience...
