VAIL, COLORADO: RIVA RIDGE TO TOURIST TRAP
An incredibly wide, two-mile-long, north-facing groomer (think solid corduroy) that alternates between rolling flats and 45-degree pitches. vail.com
STOWE, VERMONT: GOAT
Often called the most challenging trail in the East, Goat features 36 degrees of moguls on a narrow winding trail over ledges, boulders, and streams. stowe.com
SQUAW VALLEY, CALIFORNIA: CHUTE 75
Located off chairlift KT-22, this chute is a narrow, 60-degree ride that's best skied in deep powder. Without it, expect to make hop turns. squaw.com
ALTA/SNOWBIRD, UTAH: MAIN BALDY CHUTE
Bisecting the peak that separates these two iconic resorts, this 40-degree, hike-to chute (30 minutes from Alta; 10 from Snowbird) is one of the most beautiful runs in the Wasatch Range. alta.com; snowbird.com
