Chute. The top is about 45 degrees steep or so and mellows to around 40 degrees. The descent skis you down to a beautiful alpine lake with gorgeous views to the east. There is some variability to the different lines so pick one that your comfortable with and go for it[more]
Upstate New York has some great skiing in the adirondaks, as well as up north. There is a lot of nordic skiing, some fun rolling meadow skipping, and some very pretty scenery. It will be cold, so be prepared! The lake effect will bring in plenty of snow just when you think it is supposed to warm up!
How to Get There
Go North and East and see what you can come up with. The farther north you go, the colder it will be. Approaches vary, as you can go right out of the car, or spend 2 weeks in the wilderness.
