There is this run at Snowbasin - the olympic downhill run from 2002. It's off of the Mt. Allen tram. My mom took me on the tram just for the experience my first season living in Utah.
In the tram I remember thinking "what ever comes down off this thing, there's no way I'm skiing it." But I was told it's not as bad as it looks, so I took a chance.
There's a narrow icy bit at the top to get to the real start of the run. I side stepped and snowplowed down that. Afterwards, I was free to ski/tumble down the mountain without fear of serious consquences.
The run's a rush. I didn't do it with style or grace, but it feels good to say I skiied the olympic run.
