Take The Plunge

Filed Under (Magic Trail Guide) by admin on 13-10-2011

Do you know the long steep section of Redline where the Red Chair turns into an elevator?  My buddy Jeff usually skis the left.  I prefer the right line with the small ledge after the fourth turn.  Charging side by side under the chair, the eyes above add that extra element of pressure.  This is just one of the reasons why Redline is Magic’s signature trail.

After thirty years I know every drop, line and rock on the run and it still finds a way to school me.  One is hard pressed to find an “on the map” run this challenging, long and varied south of Killington.  Redline is a shining example of why Magic’s terrain is its finest asset.

Skiing Redline is an adventure with several distinct chapters.  Most storied is the double cliff directly under the chair.  Depending on whether you stick it or not dictates the cheers or jeers from above.  In the old days there was no way around, now a single chute offers a second option.

After the double cliff, a nice long stretch of “showoff” bumps leads to the plunge.  You can stop at the top and pick your line, but charging the lip is liable to muster a better reaction from the chair.

Following the plunge you land in the boulders section where large rock pillows create a natural terrain park.  Watch the kids do back flips or pull out a good old spread eagle.  All things considered, the most challenging aspect of Red is the fact that someone always wants to ski it last run.
