Roger> "Still, there is one run that is so wide open and so covered with ferns that it will be a long, long time before it becomes unskiable.  Acres and acres of widely spaced paper birches stretch to both sides of any line you choose, making it impossible to pick a bad line, no matter where you start." 

Sounds like WV, where the backcountry pressure is a lot less than VT.
