The award for densest trees to me is a toss up between Mt. Hood and White Pass. Star Wars trees at White Pass are super tight, super steep and super fun. Jack's Woods at Mt. Hood is another dense and fun one. I think White Pass wins it though, they're just soooo dense, and old growth evergreens at that. I'd post pics, but I'm always having too much fun to take them while riding said trees.

As for the size of the board, whatever you're comfortable on is what's going to be the best. What's undersized for one may be oversized for another, and vise versa. Oh, and Mayor, you need to leave WV and head west, then you'll know what powder and trees truly is.

The problem with trees on the east isn't that they're tight it's all the fucking underbrush that doesn't get covered by the snow.

I know this is a long vid, but it shows what some of our treed runs are like! This was on my 159 T7, the 160 Virus does a LOT better at this type of riding...
Liked that run at 1:30. What's it's name?

Ok, that's actually pretty spot on.

That's "Free Fall" or "Exit Only" on Whitehorn III at Lake Louise. I've taken pics sitting on the side I think it's about 45 degrees.
