    Steepest/Most Challenging Inbound Runs

    What are the sickest, steepest, most challenging runs within ski resort boundaries? I mean the best of the best.

    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.

    What qualifies as "runs within ski resort boundaries?"

    Are we talking marked runs, or any line inside the ropes? Does this include permanent closures?

    yeah, i think "within ski resort boundaries" is kind of a defunct concept with all the open boundaries and backcountry access. skiers today have a shit ton of options.

    also consider Europe. on piste vs off piste but still lift accessible?

    the concept of "boundary" has a whole different meaning in Europe, if you know what I mean.

    Of course not. What are you insinuating? I'm shocked they allow such libelous slurs to be printed on the internet.

    Exclamation

    I know that responding literally is frowned upon, but I'll give it a go anyway -

    The steepest shit I've skied inbounds has been at Crested Butte, Silverton, Taos, and Snowbird. I would like to see what Cali and Europe has to offer ...... someday.

    The longest cartwheel I've ever witnessed was performed by a young lady in Phoenix Bowl at CB. Like Max Factor quality without the compound fractures.
    Fighting leads to killing, and killing gets to warring. And that was damn near the death of us all.

    Silverton, where the easiest way down is a sustained 35 degrees.

    Squaw's got many steeps from Eagles Nest to Palisades and the Fingers that are steep. But the
    Cable Car has this elevator shaft which takes the cake:
