    Talisman is not a hard trail, if you find it tough just take your time it's not overly steep and doesn't have any surprises.

    Sorcerer isn't a hard trail either and probably the easiest of the 3 options, it's a little less steep than Talisman.

    Any of these trails can be tough under less than ideal conditions though
    Tali steeper than sorcerer. Nah.

    Do you mean "Link" instead of "Bailout" ? I thought "Bailout" came downwards from Talisman, so you couldn't go in the opposite direction, from "Black Line" to "Heart of the Magician" ?

    Talisman - depending on how the bumps are on Broomstick then that would be the way to go since it does not have a lot of pitch it is however pretty narrow.

    I hear the locals are pushing to have it called Kusty's Kliff in honor of the event.

    Whatever they're named, take the ones that point downhill. If you're going uphill it's the wrong one.

    The flags? Sad.

    Thanks for the advice everybody. Broomstick was closed today (despite what it said on the snow report), so I went down Talisman a couple times. Once I peeked over the initial crest, it wasn't as steep as I had initially feared last week. A little bumpy but not too bad. Wonderful powder field after the second headwall. 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
