Default double black diamond advice

im goin to montana this upcoming week to snowboard at snowbowl, discovery basin, lost trail, and big sky
and disco has some sick looking double black diamonds on the back side of the mountains as well as others have
double blacks too

i am a very experienced snowboarder, i can handle black diamonds with ease, and i am confident in my riding mechanics and ability

just one question though

lets say i was goin down one of the double blacks, and i fell trying to link my turns or something, are the double black diamonds so steep that i would fall and roll down the mountian for a very long time,
or will i be able to stop my self, get up, and keep going?

im scared i will just end up sliding down the mountain if i fall

heres a link if u wanna take a look at the trails

i know u cant really tell by looking at a picture so i will have to see them when i get there
but who knows? maybe they wont be as hard as i think they are?


thanks for any advice guys
