    A young Philipsburg man... died Tuesday from injuries received when he hit a tree... skiing down Claim Jumper, a blue, or intermediate, run on the area's front side. The run has no trees, but is lined by trees on either side.

    Ridiculous
    Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.

    So close minded.


    The scariest runs are after you ingest sushi that's laid out in the sun.

    So when you're at the top, you can say "I think I'll go ski ____". Also, if your buddy falls and is injured, you can say something to patrol more constructive than "He fell by that one rock next to the tree by the snow"

    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.

    Like many, I call BS on that list, especially when one reads the commentaries accompanying the "runs," some of which being whole areas (La Grave, Silver King, ...).

    22 years ago i safely rag dolled down it on several percocets and a couple of shots of yukon jack. i had to do it before we left (spring break from florida) and i had broken my collar bone the day before the trip (thus the painkillers and shots).
    when i look back now, i totally ripped it.

    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.

    Is that nominal deaths or deaths per skier? I would assume most people ski groomed blues so the traffic would be higher - like more deaths on the interstate vs. my side street.
    Usually it's just one death per skier.
