Upper goat has an extreme double fall line, lots of rocks and nearly mandatory ledge drops on it which equal fun in the powder we had today!
with that said north slope, lord and perry merrill are way more dangerous than any of the front four statically speaking.
Bush -- I prefer soft snow piles to "lots of rocks and mandatory ledge drops", but, OK, it's on my bucket list. Maybe I should ski it with you, so you can show me the "insiders" way down. Interesting what you said about North Slope, Lord, and Perry Merrill. I skied all of those -- I think they're all blues -- and didn't find them particularly dicy. They were a bit crowded though, in particular Perry Merrill, which may account for the higher accident rate.
