    Good New England Bump Runs

    All the bump talk got me thinking about bump runs that I have skied back east. Outer Limits seemed to be the most intimidating for me - just seemed long. But the list below are some that I recall not that they are always bumped but i have been on them when they have been. Now I know there are other serious bump runs that I did not list like some of the lift line trails (I am not much of a "under the lift line skier"). These are some of my favorites.

    There are a boat load of others, but the idea of limited bump runs in the Northeast does not seem right. There are several on this list that wopuld even be good for intermediates. What are some of your favorites?

    Killington
    Outer Limits
    Superstar (best in the Spring)
    Sugarbush
    Steins (best in the Spring)
    Organgrinder
    Ripcord (best in the Spring)
    Cannon First three are often good season long but really nice in the spring
    Zoomer
    Paulie’s
    Avalanche
    Upper Hardscrabble
    Pats
    Hurricane (Actually pretty challenging for a smaller ski area due to bump irregularity)
    Magic
    Goniff Glades (favorit run at Magic)
    Magician
    Red line
    Okemo These are narrower runs that are fun
    Vortex,
    White Lightening
    Upper Limelight
    Jay Peak
    The Jet (Nice spring run)
    U.N.
    Kitzbuehel
    CanAm (nice classic bump run)
    Bolton
    Lost Boyz
    Spell Binder
    Waterville
    Bobby's Run
    Ragged
    Sweepstakes
    Birch



    There are others at Stowe, Smuggs, Burke (in the woods) but the names escape me. Gunstock? Mount Snow?
    2012-2013 (39)
    2013-2014 (36)
    2014-2015 (51)
    2015-2016 (47)

    2016-2017 target - 50

    If you take what the mountain gives you, you will always have fun!

    Ripcord is barely a bump run. There are only bumps directly under the lift. I would say Spilsville at Sugarbush is the best there.

    Dave, we need to talk. You move out west and do more posting here than when you did during shitty times in the east.

    I expect more skiing pics!
    My couch might pull out but I send it.

    I feel like a lot of those runs are groomed a lot in winter.

    I like the bumps on upper wildcat
    Bubblecuffer
    underneath the Jordan quad
    Vertigo at K
    hotshot at gunstock
    some of the lower angle stuff at Bretton woods for practicing


    so are a few that were not mentioned that I've liked.

    Sugarbush - Middle Earth, Twist, Moonshine, Tumbler, Semi-Tough (this one can be a fun intermediate bump run at ME when there's enough snow), Lower Domino (another fun mellow bump run).

    Depends on your fancy. Not a ton of trails mentioned offer up consistent bumps all season long, year after year.

    Madmadworld saw a few examples that folks have said like runs at Mount Ellen, Centerline/Chin Clip at Stowe, and Chute at MRG are some of Madmadworld's favorites.
