The Most Dangerous Ski Slopes in the World

Slope down! Maybe you should have a look at the most dangerous ski slopes in the world. Each run is both thrilling and fun but it is worth seeing the list below first. Corbet’s Couloir is one of the scariest slopes in the entire world Anna Olson felt ready to explore: “I think I had my eyes shut and know I was screaming all the way down.” Once at the bottom of the mountain, she realised that she had conquered one of the most difficult ski slopes in the world. For amatuers, just standing at the top of a sharply pitched slope, attached to a pair of slippery boards may seem horrifying. For a certain sort of skier, though, the garden-variety moguls are just boredom on ice.

World's Scariest Ski Slopes in the World
Samantha Berman, senior editor at SKI magazine asserts that “Some people just seem to have different stuff coursing through their veins, at least once they strap on their skis. I don’t know if it’s an adrenaline thing or what … but they just need something more.” According to Berman, “those are the skiers who make pilgrimages to the world’s most famously challenging ski runs. Some get their fix catching “mandatory air” at storied crags like Corbet’s, or the tree-filled, triple-black-diamond Black Hole in Smugglers’ Notch, Vermont.” The most dangerous ski slopes in the world are La Chavanette (Avoriaz, France), Grand Couloir (Courchevel, France), Al’s Run (Taos Ski Valley, NM), Paradise (Mad River Glen, VT), Black Hole (Smugglers’ Notch, VT), Delirium Dive (Sunshine Village, Banff, Canada), La Grave (France), Rambo (Crested Butte, CO), Mont Fort and Tortin (Verbier, Switzerland), Great Scott (Snowbird, UT), Harikiri (Mayrhofen, Austria).
