    Are we limited to chair lifts / North America? If not, then the Aguille du Midi, the pulse gondy at La Grave and Mont Fort in Verb get my vote. For chairs, I've heard the Marte chair in Las Lenas accesses some pretty tasty stuff. For moguls I guess it depends on the snow cover, but in a low snow season maybe the Swiss Wall?

    All that said, I love Whistler Peak and my first time down skiers' right in the Cirque was definitely an eye opener....

    i dont think peak 2 creek is a traditional blue run - seems very ungroomed and difficult at times.

    anyways you failed to name a scarier lift in north america, also failed to mention a harder mogul run.

    am i supposed to give a fuck if you canadians dont like tourists? you canucks wouldnt have shit without the lower48
    Yea those N facing slopes get super icy... That's why its best to ski N facing slopes when you are worried about facets and whore. N facing slopes rarely avalanche except from wet slides.

    Tram at Big Sky and Exhibition at Wilmot Mountain. Boom!

    The Peak chair used to scare the fuck out of me when it was a slow triple.

    Whistler bowl? Not so much. Had my little girl rocking that when she was 5.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    ^ ya ive ridden the slow triple - i think in N america it is scariest ive seen by FAR

    Mogul runs are easy peezy for 5 yr olds - i feel its one of the most challenging runs ive ever encountered. im sure many on here have skied more places than i have, but my perceptive abilities are strong

    Whistler is the greatest place on earth

    The moguls in Whistler Bowl was the most challenging thing you've ever skied?

    After the groomed cat track it's the easiest thing off Peak.

    It barely ranks against the actual challenging lines on Whistler/Blackcomb. Beyond the entrance it's like every other mogul run in the world...moguls.

    In a ski off between digideath and Mofro's kids I'd put my money on either of Mofro's kids.

    again you're a spoiled little bitch , i said its prob the hardest mogul run ive ever encountered - the moguls are huge, bulletproof, its steeper than most.

    prob most reading this thread dont even know the run in question

    name a harder mogul run you dumb canuck

    ya its prob easier than skiing all of peak 2 creek too - that run gets fkn oogly

    dam, tough crowd on here, Matt. must be upset about having to wear the neckbrace at their $4/hr dishwashing jobs at the midstation lodge? no wonder my $15 burger is always burned.

    anyway I thought it was pretty nice work. I didnt have any problems with indi or whatever you posted it on either.

    Digi you might actually be right that Whistler Bowl are the most challenging moguls at Whistler.

    But who the fuck goes to Whistler to ski moguls?

    You can have fun scraping away at those icy moguls, I'll content myself with the rest of the stuff on the mountains to ski.

    It was mentioned earlier that Julian did it last year, but here is what he wrote about what it takes to send the thing in one shot: http://spreadstoke.com/snow/air-jord...herpas-cinema/

    Julian is a pure badass, and I will never forget the time I saw him send it off the 100+ footer in North Chute, directly under the tram at Snowbird during a comp! He obviously won the sickbird that year:

    Dude...

    My wife skis Whistler Bowl. Peak Chair is definitely not one i'd want to fall off of, especially near the top. But saying Whistler Bowl is in any way one of the more difficult runs at WB is pretty

    Some of the people jonging him can probably actually land the first air, unlike him... who appears to land on his hip or ass... doesn't count.

    Not to me. Looked like he just plunged into a deep landing zone in thick snow and stopped. Have had that happen to me more than a few times. A little more speed would have popped him out, but thats a tough call to make on a double like that - you usually want to take that first air really slow so you can throw in a speed check turn before hitting the big one.

    Both times I hit it I took speed and straight-lined it no problems. That platform is pretty steep, in the video that's a total hipcheck to stop. If you need to turn to kill speed there are other features for that on the mountains.... the bottom landing is more than steep enough to take heat into it. More often that not when people try to stop/slow down they simply fall off the bottom stage and that ruins it for anyone else who wants to hit it. I've seen people yard sale trying to stop and leave gear on the platform. If you're going to hit it dont pussyfoot around with turning, it's a double-stager, so hit it like one.

    ^Exactly. What he said.

    Seeing as Air Jordan is just another right of passage for every pro-form ski instructor & seasonaire out there, the ante is high. Unless you're hitting it naked, flipping it, single staging it or flipping it or hitting third step going 13471590 miles an hour to flat afterwards, odds are you aren't impressing the masses. It's like watching lemmings on any given pow day.

    Trying to hit Air Jordan "small" or "slow" is just silly.
