The descent for this area is pretty short, but it does get steep. You start out going through the trees, and as it gets steeper, it becomes an avy path. The hanging meadow is a short pitch that is void of trees, but be careful because it is prone to avalanches caused by backcountry skiers. Once you are down through the meadow, you can cut hard left to get back to the first turnoff and take a quick skin back up to the warming hut or you can continue NW and go down to 7 Mile, which is a much longer run.[more]
There are some rolling hills, but not a lot of steep lines in massachusetts. There is more touring, and some lower angle stuff. There are a couple of older ski areas in western and central mass. It is generally not very crowded, and you might run into a couple of snowshoers.
