My Favorite Last Run…….

Filed Under (Magic Trail Guide) by admin on 08-09-2010

With all the talk of Magic’s extensive terrain many people must look at our little trail map and scratch their heads.  With all due respect to Donald Moss who drew it back in the early 1980’s it just doesn’t do the hill justice.  To help readers understand Magic’s terrain, I have decided to write periodic features on some of Magic’s defining runs.

The majority of Magic’s terrain falls in two valleys the east and the west side.  Two runs, Redline and Blackline, run right up the spine in the center.  Today we will take a look at Blackline and what makes it such a unique and varied ski experience.

Think of a traffic cone and you will understand how the width changes, the very top is just wide enough for two skiers side by side.  High winds expose the large cliff bands and create large pockets of powder.   This section dubbed “Black Magic” features a race, The Craig Potter Memorial Black Magic Challenge, now a part of the Ski The East Tour.

Next comes the Ledges section, a wide, steep section riddled with hucks.  This leads to the second ledges section where Witch and Broomstick drop in.  Sun basked western style skiing on a moderate pitch provides a nice selection of fall lines and drops.   The final part of the Ledges section is the headwall and you better have your game on because it is very visible from the deck.

One more steep powder field and you drop into the groomed Hocus Pocus section of Blackline at roaring speeds.  Don’t forget to hit up Magic’s terrain park, um, feature before you ski on to the deck for a cold one.

Tip: Ledges is a great place to be around 3:00 on any given day as it basks in the afternoon sun while it sets on the Golden Triangle.

Best For: The very top is for the best skiers only, but the second ledges section is great for any advanced intermediate looking for a real double black treat.   If you have doubts, cut out just before the headwall on skiers left. Don’t cut out and you will be rewarded.
