I've done all the Colorado and Cali one's. They are classics. I'll add Short and Long Haul plus both Runaway's at the Jane to that list.

I don't have a favorite. But I do love bumps.

I'll have to throw a nod to Spiral Staircase - Telluride.

I still like Clairs run at Hunter.
Gandy dancer at Vail was great.
Blockbuster at Plattekill .
Not many bumpers in Utah where I spend a lot of time so nothing to say about there.

The question I have is what constitutes a bump run?

I can't argue that OL is a bump run, but there can be much more fun to be had on other runs at K like the needles LL or needles when it bumps for that matter. Is the fiddle a bump run? Never seen it groomed.

Mary Jane

I'll take most of the runs off the Challenger lift at the Jane side.

Various bumps and trees below Iron Horse last sunday cuz it has not been running much and noone was riding it but me and a few others.

Can't believe I forgot Extrovert... oh wait, Blue Knob is too cheap to make snow and always uses the weather as an excuse so skiing it happens once a year if I'm lucky! Check out their website and condition reports if you ever need a good laugh... even stuff they list as open isn't open when you get there, and that's during GOOD WINTERS! :
LOL

There are just too many good ones at MRG.

Guilty Pleasure: Sel's Choice at Okemo, a blue with "hero bumps":

Bar none, K-marts Outer Limits after a freezing rain.

Funnel or Banana; Crested Butte, Co.

Outer Limits is not on the list for me. Killington has other good runs.

Mad River Glen is the best I've found. The lines are tight and skiable. The lines are made by good skiers and no boarders to scrape it down.

Phil is right, Mad River has lots of great bump runs. Antelope(sp), slalom hill, even Paradise.

I don't go to Jay for the bumps but there is one wide trail that is steep and filled with great lines. I don't know the name.

Ignorant question to local from CB on first trip to MRG 7 years ago while waiting on line for the single:"do you know where we find a good bump run here?"

Locals reply: " you'll have no problem finding it".

We were laughing by the third run.

The "bowl" is about 3 turns that drop you into the "field" which runs you in to the only interesting part of the run, the trail. Blue Knob is a unique mtn. and their best runs go straight down the fall line under lifts (Route 66, High Hopes), tight and steep for PA. Again, however, they never have open what they claim, and do yourself a favor, and don't bother ignoring the closed ropes on any of the glades they show on the map unless you want to buy new skis. Fallen logs and rocks everywhere, and they are NOT covered well enough. If you go, make sure they just got 12 inches of natural snow, bc their snowmaking is weak. Like Peyton Manning in the playoffs type weak LOL

Now, please hurry up March 3rd, it's almost Summit County time and I'm drooling over the pics i'm finding online of A-Basin! (the others are nice too lol)

You mention Bubblecuffer at Sugarloaf. I love that run!

Actually we used to link up three runs

Top of Wedge
Middle of Bubblecuffer
bottom of Winter's Way

we called it

wedgecufferway

It was epic.

Mary Jane IMO is hands down the best bump mountain of all...at least that I've skied...could have put 5-6 runs on that list but for variety had to mix it up.....
