    Hmm, I definitely have no idea what a bump run really is then. I just thought it was anything natural/ungroomed.

    Up groomed yes natural not necessarily. While there are many good bump trails that have no manmade on them there are many great bump runs that have lots of snow making. Thankfully so otherwise Killington's main spring attraction would not last as long as it does every year.

    In the OP

    I have never skied anything in NE south of the VT & NH borders except Brodie and that does not exist any more.

    Satan's Staircase?

    I think of "Bump run" as wall to wall, steep and wide trails that exist for unescapable mogul bashing. Outer Limits being a classic example.

    Rolling, narrow trails with bumps - my favorite - I think of as 'classic new england trails'.

    FWIW YMMV.

    So with those definitions in mind, I'd say National at Stowe is a great classic bump run...

    For some PA love...Tunkhannock at Elk.

    I have seen Outer limits groomed on one side many of times so it doesn't fit your description.

    I don't think the two need to be mutually exclusive. I think a trail can be both a "classic new england trail" and a "bump run". To me a "bump run" needs to be wide enough to have more than one line, but it doesn't need to be super-wide. I would very much consider something like Middle Earth at Sugarbush both a "bump run" and a "classic new england trail".

    This makes much more sense to me. Middle Earth is a good example of both. Castle Rock Run as well. Those would be my favorite choice due to the hybrid nature of it. Many of the trails at Mad River Glen also have that same exact feel.

    I agree, that's what I view as a classic "bump" run. Additional factor to qualify - you have to be able to link dozens of turns heading straight down the fall line (eliminates Rumble). I would also say that easy viewing from the bottom and/or a lift should also be a factor.
