Best Interesting Green Circle Runs.
Kind of a different take on this question. Just for fun, looking for candidates for the best green circle runs that would be enjoyed by intermediate-advanced skiers due to length, scenery, terrain undulation, or other engaging aspects.
There are so many out there, but some that immediately come to mind from my experiences:
-Polecat trail at Wildcat, NH; great scenery, long for the East - approx 3 miles/2k vert, fun curves and drops, usually well covered with snow.
-Schoolmarm trail at Keystone, CO; 3.5 miles/2.3k vert, like Wildcat except wider, straighter, with beautiful views of the Rockies rather than Whites.
-Combination of trails at Le Massif, Quebec; skirt the eastern perimeter of layout by descending from summit lodge on La Jean Noel, connect with La Coulee at base of Camp Boule lift and finally with L'Ancienne to base of ski area at Grande Pointe lift, ~3 miles & vertical drop of 2300', long stretches feel woodsy and isolated, then opens to magnificent views of the St. Lawrence River.
-Great Eastern at Killington, VT; not sure if they color code this green or blue, but it's no more difficult than the others listed above, if you run the original length from Killington Peak to base of Skyeship gondola you'll bag about 4.5 miles and 3000' vertical. Only recommended on quiet weekdays due to numerous trail crossings and heavy rush hour traffic.
-There are a couple in my local mid-Atlantic region that have a special place in my heart: Mambo Alley at Blue Knob, PA and Timber Trail at Canaan Valley, WV. Both about 2 miles and 850-1000' vertical with interesting scenery or undulation.
Any fellow, mellow trail cruisers out there?
