Instead of just a trail, I would say the top of Black Mt. is an awesome "brink" for the rest of the mountain. The way the trails just drop right off is lots of fun.



I agree. It freaked out my wife the first time she saw it. Went last year with some friends, their 8 year old loved it.

On Piste: Master Magician

Off: Dodge's has to be about the most intimidating entrance in the East.

Skier's right of Hillman's highway. A corniced entrance into a rapidly narrowing chimney. I'll have to hunt for pictures, although I don't have any that do it justice.

No. I haven't skied it.

Actually, Left Gully is much like that. A drop down 10-15' over a melting cornice. Don't wanna fall there. Narrowing chute after the entrance.

[quote]Speaking of the brink of winter, what's your favorite brink on a ski trail? I mean a trail that starts right off with its steepest headwall, challenging you to take the plunge.[quote]

By this definition, the Loaf's best brink is Upper Gondi Line coming off the Spillway XCut. Steepest at the top (be sure your edges are sharp), no break until you get to the ghost of the midstation at least 1000' vert down.

#2 Again off Spillway XCut on Lower Nitro. Not as long but the crash fence is there for a reason. The top of Nitro eases (reletively) you in a little.

#3 The Flume off Widowmaker over in King Pine. Classic cornice shape.

There are a couple places on the on the Backside that get your attention but don't fit the definition. And off-piste huckster delights at the Loaf as at many other mtns.

While Left Gully can cornice, Dodge's in in a different league. Much narrower, much steeper sustained pitch. I've skied LG "a few times".

I haven't skied it, but the relatevaly new Blazers Bluff (after Ted Blazer former mgr. of W/F and pres. of ORDA) at Whiteface. It's jump in steep at the top then a right turn w/ a huge boulder behind it followed by a flat runout.

Amen. I don't think I've ever met anyone who, on his or her first trip up the Ravine has not, after putting on skis and looking down, said "I've climbed too high."

Well, the thing about Tucks is that on approaching it from the upper snowfields it is a little difficult to get yourself oriented left/right so that you know exactly where the Lip is and where in the Lip the crevasses of interest are.
