    Glad you liked it. Really great surprise pow day. Planned to ski until drenched but it just snowed for hours. Agree about Talisman, big soft bumps, old school magic skiing.

    We skied broomstick. Sporty but totally skiable. Same with black line. That's magic.

Second time down I took Bailout over to Heart of the Magician / Lower Magician, which wasn't as steep but there were a couple of tricky "death trenches" (is there skier slang for that) on Bailout. Also it is funny that the Bailout trail comes *after* the most difficult part of Talisman, the second headwall was much easier (and even had an unmoguled part on the left).

    Here's the Ski Tracks map, runs 3 & 5

    Based on early trail maps I've seen (not personal experience) lower Talisman didn't exist - Talisman went into Heart of Magician, so "Bail-Out" was actually Talisman. Only when todays lower section of Talisman was cut did they need to a name for Bail Out, though some maps showed the trail without a name.
