This may sound strange, but...

I haven't found anything really steep yet. Sure things like Tower Three Chute and the Expert Chutes and Paint Brush are steep but they're not "oh my god, help, I can't do this" steep. The last time I had that was in Chardonnay Couloir in Tignes last year. Of course, each time you ski one of those "oh my god, help, I can't do this" steep things then you don't have that feeling until you're on something a bit steeper, but...

Don't get me wrong, Tower Three Chute is nice and I could ski it far better and more fluidly than I am at present; so it's nice and a challenge. It's a good pitch, has good snow, has a classic hour glass shape, has rocks in it (at current snow levels), a couple of trees; it's like someone sat down with Sim Ski Hill and designed a chute with 'all the trimmings' but, well, I don't get the "god that's steep" feeling... I kinda miss it. I think that's worrying...
