Heck a lot of black diamond runs are mellow which is why I started hiking and riding fresh uncharted terrain. It's more of a rush not knowing how steep the terrain may get on your descent. Powder without the steepness to really get you floating and throwing loads of snow on turns is kind of boring.
just watch the first part of Further
