World's Scariest Ski Slopes

Goat, Stowe, VT

The Ride: Punishingly long (2,000 vertical feet), crazy steep (sections of it have a 40-degree pitch), and pocked with both labyrinthine glades and ungroomed bald-faced bumps, Goat has more than earned its wicked reputation. Its double fall line doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll take double the falls here—but don’t be surprised.

Insider Trivia: Allegedly, the trail was named by a summertime hiker who mused that only a mountain goat would be able to ascend it (never mind descend).
