    Slope Pics

    Roundtop Mountain Resort

    Or as we like to affectionately call it Roundtop Hill with locker room!

    I took pictures of all of the slopes at Roundtop today after I was inspired by one of Lars' posts when he told me that A Basin had a slope called Ramrod as well. I will start posting them here. I took quite a few so I will start with the greens and post them in slope order. That way you will all know what I am talking about when I talk about doing drills on this slope or that slope and also if any of you ever get the urge to visit Roundtop, it's a tiny family oriented mountain which might be a little underwhelming to those of you who ski glaciers and Antarctic ice formations but they do make a great bowl of chilli. So if these pics inspire you to come visit and check us out, let me know and I'll take some turns with you!

    Powderhorn. This is our easiest green. It starts flat on top and then increases in pitch when it merges with Drummerboy, our second green.

    Don't know why these extra attachments showed up and I do not know how to remove them.

    Fife & Drum
    This is our biggest terrain park. The corridor that you can see picture viewer's right/skier's left is considered our first blue. All our terrain parks are considered double blacks because they are terrain parks. If you look at the top of the picture kind of in the center, the slope going up to the summit is Lafayette's Leap, one of our single blacks and further left of that is Minuteman. In between them is the tiny terrain park, Bunker Hill. It is only about a hundred feet long by my rough uneducated guess and It has one box rail and two jumps and that merges into Lower Lafayettte's Leap. I did not get pics of it today, I may get some later.

    This is Recruit. It is our intermediate bump field and also considered a blue. If you look at the picture of Minuteman taken from the base of the headwall you can see Recruit as the off shoot on skier's right.

    Susquehanna Trail
    Another blue which does not get a ton of sunshine so it often has really good snow.
