    Overall I think Sugarbush is the best mountain for bumps in the East. Killington being second best
    With all the love given to Sugarbush in this thread, which I do think is justified, I am surprised no one has mention Sunrise or Morning Star. They aren't always bumped up but I've had some great bump runs on them over the years. Not overly long but you can lap the North Lynx triple and get a lot of good runs there.

    Very true! Morning Star with decent snow on it is actually one of my favorites at Lincoln Peak. Even last year I had some good runs down that one, especially the lower sections. Just not as challenging as my other favorites.

    The dense snow from yesterday has bonded well on the natural snow trails. Tumbler and Hammerhead were the best they have been all season IMHO.

    Forgot about Sunrise. 2014-2015 we had good conditions and Sunrise was really good with moderate bumps.

    I had the worst run ever on that trail. first few turns were fine until I got to the first frozen whale. The 10 to 15 foot drop offs on the back of the whales were glare ice. so 2 turns ice whale, 2 turns ice whale over and over again to the bottom.

    I feel your pain. Sounds like we had the exact same experience. I felt great at the top, small soft moguls. Then massive ice whales. I was half way down the steep ice whales and three snow borders came over the drop. They all fell then kept their boards off and slid from mogul to mogul on their butts. I fell 4 times, bad falls with long slides. (these weren't icy, they were unedgable ice) . My goal was not to be passed by the snow boarders. I skied out before them, barely. I remember stopping to check I had all my equipment one glove was in the front of my jacket. I thought I had left that glove behind. Scariest run of my life. There were two signs at the top, I think they said "expert only" with skull and cross bones written in black magic marker.

    Shockwave can be the best, or worst, trail on any given day. I had some of the best runs of my season last year on the last weekend it was open. Mid April. Bumps were not huge, or zippers, but after the mandatory short walk it skied great.

    When they let that bump up it would be a double-diamond elsewhere, and it gets way worse than in this picture. Whiteface in general is "no kid gloves" when it comes to their trail ratings.

    I'd add Empire at WF to the list when it's open. Nice narrow bumps

    Did Jimmy lose his hat or did he keep it on?
