The Mall was still open when I was there (some walking at the bottom), and the bumps were MUCH better. Perhaps because it's narrower and under the lift, weaker skiers are discouraged from skiing it... Stein's is pretty wide, and it's probably one of those trails people want to brag about skiing because of the name recognition... It's funny that you say Sugarbush has the best bumps in the east. I've always thought (imo) that honor belonged to the beast - they just seem to attract the best of the best, but I'm curious what others think!
It's a shame they don't (or didn't) seed any lines on Stein's Run. It follows the fall line very well which makes for a good bump run.
I am going to Sugarbush May 5 through the 8. I was wondering how the spring skiing is and if you think they will be getting more snow. It says its supposed to rain while I am there but at the peaks it will be snowing. Could that all change to snow? In the begginning it was supposed to be snow.
