Sun Valley Warm Springs, Idaho, USA

Massive vertical drops, terrifying cliff face descents and spectacular on-piste tree runs.

Idaho’s two-mile-long, top-to-bottom screamer charges straight through a natural gully with banked sidewalls before opening up to the width of a motorway. The gully is wide, uncrowded, perfectly groomed and maintains an average pitch of 35 degrees, without a single blind turn to slow you down.

With an uninterrupted 600-metres of vertical descent and 300 sunny days a year — all aided by ridiculously generous snow making — you can start to see why Warm Springs has a cult following.
