    We have had this discussion a few times. The rumor at Gore is mentioned often within these discussions.

    Agreed. Upper Gondiline and Nitro at Sugarloaf are up there too. Nitro is mad short though.

    Agree with these. In the rare event lower Ovation gets groomed at K, that is up there. Believe it or not, Loon has a good one (well 2 actually) with Angel Street and Ripsaw on South. Both are routinely groomed, start at South and enjoy ripping Ripsaw for a good hour on perfect carpet, even weekends, first thing. Vortex at Sunday River is often groomed and is fun though straight.

    While certainly not the steepest, if you want constant steep pitch the front side of Jiminy Peak is nice.

    One of these at Killington will usually get groomed- Outer Limits, Ovation, or Big Dipper. All in addition to Cascade which is groomed regularly.

    How about Avalanche at Cannon. Got to have one of the longest steepest continuous fall lines.

    Isn’t Big Dipper a gladed run? Not sure how often it gets groomed, LOL. Do you mean Double Dipper ?

    The only reasonable way to consider this is an actual trail of some distance and not just a short steep shot on a particular trail. Granted, I am not interested in debating what that means, but I think we can all get the picture. In other words, White Heat does not count. One steep section, the rest of length of trail is blue/black.
