Some lines in the Face Chutes are clearly the most intimidating. The Face Chutes are a huge area and many people take the gladed area or head straight under the tram. A little bit looker's left are a few more chutes that mostly contain straight lines and/or contain mandatory straightlines. Short, but also the 50-100 ft headwall on the chutes under the tram are also the steepest pitch I've skied on a marked run in the East.
I have never skied this trail but noticed on a terrain map that Royal Flush @ Killington is steep - short but steep.
Pretty steep but not crazy steep, not that short either. The trail does afford the best view of the Canyon area though. Problem with Royal Flush is it's exposure. It gets hit pretty hard with direct sun & doesn't have snow making on it so it often melts out pretty quick. When it's good it's one of the better trails on the mountain.
Royal Flush faces SSE so when it has good snow coverage it can be awesome with big soft bumps. The flip side is it can freeze into an ice rink when temps drop. It is an interesting trail.Yep, coverage is main issue on Royal Flush. If you have good coverage, not that bad.
I'm curious as to whether people think Pitch Pine (at King Pine) warrants a mention in this thread.
