What are your five all-time favorite trails? - Page 2

post #31 of 84
OK, here's the deal,
1. I can't narrow it down to five.
And
2. I'm not telling!

But, for starters (and no particular order):
1. Stade de Slalom @ La Daille (Val d'Isere)
(cause it was the first black I ever did)
2. Rock n Roll (and the run down to it from the glacier @ Blackcomb
3. Johnstone Junction @ Winter Park (tough to only pick one at WP!, could also include the Cirque, Reta's Run & Sleeper)
4. 7th Heaven (Blackcomb)
5. The run down from Pte de Montets (?) to Le Fornet (Val d'Isere)
6. The run around the back of Schattberg in Saalbach - can't remember its name, but it's about 7km long, I think.

...and then there's the mens downhill course at Les Houches, the Sun Bowl (?) on Whistler, and the first run I ever did, in Saalbach, which was a long blue, with a bar half way down it ( )...

Ramrod, Ski Roundtop, PA - The run that prepared me for all others.

High Rustler, Alta - Skied it for the first time two days ago... I'm still shaking!

Kreuzjoch Steilhang, Ski Zentrum Schlick 2000, Austria - The first chute.

Mont-Fort (skiers right side) to Tortin and Mont-Fort to Le Chable, Verbier, Switzerland - Endless bumps on one and 8,280 vertical feet on the other.

Land Bridge, Squaw - Great views especially when the loaded tram is way overhead.

Mont Fort, Verbier, Switzerland (cliff jumps)
Argentiere, France (from the top, down the glacier to the village)
La Grave, France (bowl)
Murren, Switzerland (from the revolving resturant down to Lauterbraunen)
The Wall, Avoriaz, Swiss/French border (for bumps).
The Sash, Tignes, France.(someone else has mentioned Le Fornet's trees)
Poubelle, Mont Blanc, France (difficult start).
Nothing in North America (too shallow, too rounded & too short), possibly some of the above mentioned in Blackcombe/Whistler.

Wels, how did you end up over here? Far too much back slapping going on for my liking, and why can none of you spell or use punctuation?

we'll see if euro has much to say about skiing or if it's just like fidget, all nervous poodle with not much but yipping at the heels and witless blabbering.

Eurotrash,

If you intend to contribute and enjoy the company here, then welcome, and you will last. If it's about trying to mess with everyone here, you are correct. You probably will not last long.

In any case, It's up to you. If you don't want everyone getting all over you, you might want to pick a different screen name however. The one you picked out does not seem to be very welcome by some of the members.

Where to start...

1) Grizzly Bowl, Bear Valley, California

1400'vert of bumps, jumps, steeps, and some unbelievable snow after a huge sierra dump. (and you don't have to ride a lift to get to it!!! straight from your car to the bottom of the mtn!!!

2)West Shore Chute, Kirkwood, California

off of chr #4, (slightly OB) just over 1000' vert, narrow, and measures 50 degrees of pitch at the steep section, lift served with a little hiking

3)Crater Lake Run, Mt. Ruapehu, New Zealand

takes between 30-45 minutes of hiking to get to the top of the highest peak on the North Island, but well worth it! On a clear day (the only time you'd want to be up there) you can see the Pacific Ocean to the east, and the Tasman Sea to the west- at the same time!!! Some amazing snow- wide open, with a few little tricks thrown in if you are not careful

4)Full Moon skiing at DioValezza, St. Moritz, Switzerland

every full moon, they open up the tram, have a HUGE party, then ski down in the moonlight! Look out for the crazies!! Best Bet- hang with a local, and ski down the back side through the glacier!

5)Anywhere in the Back Bowls of Vail after a 12"+ storm!!!

But get there early- the locals will be out in force!!!

Someplace fun I have never been before...

As exploration is every bit a part of the sport my favorite "trails" are the small bits of the mountain I have never skied before.

The new places I've never been to before, discovering hidden gems in small resorts. Every time I ski a new mountain I discover a whole nother set of "favorite trails."

These are the things which entertain me while skiing.

To put a value on my favorite trail takes away the essence of the sport. I hope to have not skied my favorite trail...

This message is specially for some total pratts from England called BOB MONKCHALET and THE MUTINEER who check in here on a regular basis. They also try to involve themselves with a forum on a UK site called the JW Winter Sports Abuse Zone on www.ifyouski.com. Are they as obnoxious here as they are back home? I wonder how long it will take for them to spot this? Apparently we're not allowed to swear on this site - what a load of bollox!

I'm not changing my name and I hate Uncle Sam - OK? And yes, in case you're wondering I do ski, just not in your sad country

So you're assuming I'm male - OK if that suits your image of me!

Icequeen, you have them on the run.

man form oz & Todd m
you have bitten on eurotrash's hook, & it will require considerable dexterity on your respective parts to extract yourselves. Remember if you are in hole stop digging.

IceKing, haven't heard from you for a while!

Are you sure about my ID? Wouldn't want to spoil the show for the mute and monkchalet-tart, would we? Poor old mute has had the bars on his cage thoroughly rattled - he says I'll last 3 hours - he dreams of lasting 3 hours! He can't even get it up anymore which is why he has succumbed to the pleasures of abuse.
The bait hole is dug deep and the worms are wriggling right onto my hook.....

What are you talking about Ice?

(That didn't take much dexterity)
post #59 of 84
I prefer to ski on Pistes - none of this Septic trail nonsense
post #60 of 84
Todd M, you are way off course mate. But keep trying, the Mutineer (affectionately known as muttonhead) doesn't like any contributors from the Abuse Zone playing with his toys, so the longer you guys keep responding, the more p!ssed off he'll get!
