So close minded.
The scariest runs are after you ingest sushi that's laid out in the sun.Every man dies. Not every man lives.
You don’t stop playing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop playing.

I think I knew what bodybag was on my second day skiing CB, to be honest. Although the article and picture are WAY off for bodybag.

Zig Zag, Blackcomb.
Late spring, last run. Proper drunk mixed with high speed, people everywhere, zig zaggin' about is purely mental.
Well that's my interpretation of dangerous." In society, men can't cry, or shouldn't cry. I've been told by people that it's okay to cry but, you know what, it's been used against me. So I don't cry anymore, I just beat people up. It's a lot more fun." Peter Steele Type O Negative

At my local hill here in Cincy, Perfect North, its astonishing how many people can hurt themselves on 400 ft of vert. We have quiet the group of patrollers who do a hell of a job keeping up with the endless stream of injuries on a weekend night.
I can understand how they could say all of those are dangerous, but how about they do two lists: one for getting freight trained by a gaper, and one for tomahawking into oblivion.

Really if you were gonna list the 13 most dangerous runs you'd have to pick from any of the close-out lines JT and Cliff Huxtable ran.....

I can't believe that Kitzbuel's Strief didn't make it to the top three!!! WhoTF made that list??? They should have put the word: Hahnenkamm (the actual mountain the Streif is on...more people would know it then).
Never been to Crested Butte...but the Body Bag sounds interesting.
As for Hunter.... I made up my mind years ago that I wanted to take a semester or two off and try my hand at being a ski-bum. I applied too late for most famous mountains, and Hunter Mtn was the only ski area in the country still advertising in the back of Ski Magazine...and so I applied and got hired there as a liftie....and loved it. Not the weekend crowds nor the cheap bastards who only allowed us workers to ski on our two days off...I just loved being a car-less (and careless) ski-bum there...and hanging out with the other ski-bums as equally broke. Wild place, really. More snow on people's living room tables than on the mountain, if I remember right.
But if I remember, they DID have some respectably steep and tough runs there. I'm not sure I got the name's right...but I remember Hellsgate, and K27 as being steep runs. And I can swear they were tougher than Racer's Edge, but it's been awhile.
