    Sugarbush used to groom FIS much more often. The past several years they rarely ever groom it. 2 or 3 years ago I think the only time they groomed it was right before the final weekend of the season! This year I can't recall seeing it on the grooming list once yet.

    Stein's mid-season sees the groomer every couple weeks or so it seems. In the spring it can be a lot of fun if it warms up enough. Sometimes it takes that trail a while to soften up. Back to your original list, Ripcord is groomed pretty regularly most of the time (usually at least twice a week). In the spring they sometimes leave it alone more and let it bump up. Organgrinder they do usually let bump up a bit (years ago it seemed this practice was reversed where OG would see the groomer often and Ripcord would be left alone more).

    Sugarloaf has got to be one of the better bump Mtns with dedicated (for the most part) bump trails with a decent pitch in (listed in order of preference): Bubblecuffer, Winters Way, Misery Whip, Rip Saw, Skidder, Double Bitter.

    Some other favorites from places I frequent....
    Sunday River: Ruby Palace, & Caramba
    Stowe: Starr, Goat, Chin Clip

    My favorite topic! Spend all my time at Sunday River. Besides the obvious and popular - agony (ickiest bumps), caramba, ruby palace - the Locke Mt natural trails are awesome - upper cut, Locke line, tightwire, crossbow. Looks like all of upper spruce will be bumpy this winter . There are some trails that can be great if not groomed: top gun (amazing 2-3weeks ago, flattened since), shockwave. Oh, one of my faves for lapping end of day hero bumps - 3D to Absolutely.

    And all of MRG

    That description reminded me of Lower Antelope at Mad River Glen. Also a great trail. Never-ending moguls and no escape.
