    Great report ! I first skiied those 3 runs last season (although not in the same trip) and it is a great feeling to have made it down those tough trails. The “bowl” after the Face Chutes was great back then too, nice soft bumps even though it was icy that day on the groomers.

    A couple other trails that I have heard rank right up there (have yet to ski any of these):

    DJ’s Tramline - Canon
    Black Hole, Upper Liftline, Freefall, Robin’s Ron - Smuggs
    Rumble - Sugarbush
    Magician - Magic

    Rumble IMO is semi-easy if it's not icy. There's no mandatory drops just a couple rocks that stick out. It turns back and forth a lot and there's zero "exposure factor" (as opposed to Lift Line). There's probably three "steep sections" but they just take a few turns to get past.

    Semi-easy is a slight exaggeration but I actually find skiing Steins more challenging, or Paradise proper(steep moguls). Or any trail that's icy, windblown and skied off.

    Also if conditions on Rumble aren't great you can ski the woods directly to skiers left.

    What is the E chair at Breckinridge? There's no chair with that name on the map, although I'm guessing it's the Falcon Super Chair.

    The E chair is on the far right of Peak 9 if your looking at the map. Tom's Baby and the Windows are on each side of the lift. The terrain in that area of Breck is very steep.

    Goat is my favorite run so far but the top is almost never open..when it does on a weekend it gets crowded..same as upper Starr...upper liftline does not get crowded as the exit to middle is a bit hairy..
    Upper national..midlle and lower are fun if done all in a row
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    That’s encouraging, I have made it down Steins and Paradise without much trouble, but haven’t yet made it over to Castle Rock. Definitely high on the to-to list once I recover from my broken arm.

    The Castlerock area is the best part of Sugarbush, Rumble is a very cool run. I've notice that the lift hasn't been open much if at all this year though at Castlerock, you've had to hike to the terrain.

    That's essentially what makes it difficult if it's icy and the moguls aren't well formed (or none). Straight steep shot, if you aren't getting an edge it's a long way down.
