For those who are a little more daring, Murdock Bowl and Red Pine Bowl should be high on the list. Murdock Bowl is inbounds hike-to terrain from the top of Super Condor Express chairlift, and it’s sure to get your heart pumping in more than one way. Murdock is a series of long, wide, steep double black chutes; the further down the ridgeline you traverse the longer and steeper the chutes get. So to get ultra-radical you’ll want to head to One Hundred Turns. Red Pine Bowl, off of Ninety-Nine 90 Express chairlift, also features chutes, but they are much narrower and lined with trees. Red Pine Bowl also accesses don’t miss double black runs like Lower East Face and the expert glades of Fantasy Ridge. If there’s one area that you want to spend a lot of time in, it’s probably the terrain off the Ninety-Nine 90 Express chairlift. The Ninety-Nine 90 area is an expert skier’s slice of heaven with groomed and sometimes ungroomed cruisers, like Aspen Grove, 94 Turns and Talus Garden, plus all the steep glades on skiers right off the top of the lift. Expert skiers will never want to leave.
