    Some other favorites from places I frequent....
    Sunday River: Ruby Palace, & Caramba
    Stowe: Starr, Goat, Chin Clip
    Agreed. When Ripsaw is good, it might be my favorite. Awesome character and always empty.

    RIP Saddleback with Muleskinner.

    Downdraft at SR too is nice, especially in the spring.

    There's very few runs, save natural trails, that NEVER see a groomer. Depending on the winter it can seem like a lot (last winter seemed like everything was groomed all the time)!

    Some mountains seem to rotate trails that are groomed and bumped a lot like SB with FIS and K too. SL alternates between grooming and not grooming Skidder regularly. Most of my days at SL last year it seemed had a bump-less Skidder. Anyone have other mountains that do this frequently (versus Pats that always has Hurricane ungroomed).

    I almost prefer a mountain to rotate because then, as long as there are SOME runs available, you get some variety in during the season. Of course, if a mountain just has no ungroomed available sometimes then its a problem though...

    Ripsaw is cool because if the drop about midway down. Skidder looks good but whenever I have been at SL there was a Mogul Comp happening on Skidder.

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

    Its pretty standard IMO. Steepish and down the fall line, but there are better trails at SL! The bumps are usually great (assuming they're not icy death) because of the comps though.

    Poma line is a blue? Off the top of my head I would have said black, but I'm too lazy to actually check.

    Either way, it's fun when the snow is good.

I only listed the trails that I remembered. I skied Steins on May 1st on a free day and the bumps were beautiful large corn snow bumps.
