Overrated: Front Five at Cannon. Yes, they have great pitch, but those trails are awfully short and WAY too wide. I would have rathered the mountain put in 8 trails with character across that width of terrain, instead of 5 massively wide straight boulevards.
Saddleback, ME: Muleskinner. I'd heard a little buzz about this being a neat trail, but when I skied it first time two years ago found it to have cool remote feel, quite tight and twisty.
Wildcat, NH: really like Wildcat ski area, fits my ability level very well. There really isn't anything inbounds that is super steep, but heading straight under the Express Chair or nearby parallel trail (old gondy line?) you get 2000 vert of soft bumps with a few little rock drops and an audience.
Feline. I wonder if it gets ignored because it's looks small on the trail map, but I always find myself alone on the trail, and I would argue it has some of the most interesting terrain on the mountain. Small rock and cliff bands and lift towers to navigate, and much narrower than Lift Lion or Top Cat.
This pic is from last year, the day after 18" or so. Groomers were frozen over, the woods were crusty and dangerous, and Feline was by far the best trail on the mountain.
