When The Bullet Hits The Bone

Filed Under (Magic Trail Guide) by admin on 19-10-2010

Twilight Zone….. It was my first glade.  I can still remember that day in 1987, I was in fourth grade and my dad decided it was time for me to ski it.  I was terrified, but I knew I couldn’t get the trail sign pin in the gift shop if I didn’t actually ski it.

A crooked sign nailed to a tall dead tree first greeted me.  As I peered down the trail I could see trees in the middle of the falline.  Remember this was 1987, the era of wider trails and bigger lawsuits.  All the other hills had trails named glade this and glade that, but none of them had trees!  Once famous eastern glades were getting major haircuts, left naked with only their names remaining.

Even Magic started down the path with the widening of a few trails and the planned Twilight Zone redesign.  Save Twilight Zone T-shirts popped up on the hill and the trail was spared.

With ski areas like Magic embracing natural terrain features, the 2000’s have proved a better era for trails like Twilight Zone.  Today I can still find the big boulders halfway down that mesmerized me as a 9 year old.  Many of the original trees still stand.  Islands of new growth have been left uncut by the brush trimmers to ensure the future of the trail.

Because it lies in a small basin, the snow collects here often making it the first skiable glade.  Generously spaced trees and an undulating double falline make for a classic gladed run you’ll never forget.
