    Madona, Smuggs
    single chair, MRG

    Cannon Tram. (Unless it not being a chairlift disqualifies it)

    Top 3 for callenge expert run in New England with DJs. One of the longest, most challenging glades in Kinsman. No run-out

    Kennebago Quad - Saddleback. I don't have much experience there, but what I saw is legit

    Bear, Superstar and Canyon quad at Killington - all great expert pods

    Forerunner at Stowe - Front Five

    Kennebago at Saddleback. Under your stated vertical but loads of expert terrain from tight trees to steep open groomers to classic narrow new England old school trails.

    Imho for expert skiers one of the absolute best pods in new England to lap all day.

    What's your definition of "expert" runs? I don't go by trail rating alone as I don't necessarily agree with some trail ratings on certain trails...

    I love Sugarbush, but I don't know that I would put Heaven's Gate on that list. Paradise is the only trail off that lift that I would really consider an "expert" trail.

    Stowe's FourRunner Quad needs to be on this list.

    You got two of mine--Castlerock, Single Chair.

    I'd also add Bear Mountain Quad at Killington and White Heat Quad at Sunday River (or "Number 10").

    Yeah, me too. That might cut out Bear and White Heat.

    In all honesty, some of their stuff in the East Basin Area was good. Limited, but good.

    Gondola at Stowe if you are willing to hike up above and black or red at Magic. Technically not always 'runs' as I think some of the best stuff is in the trees, but I think the best consistent runs of any lifts in the east. Of course include the single at mad river and castle rock is solid as well.
