I was at stowe maybe a month ago, in the same glades. It felt pretty steep even compared to some of the jay peak glades ive been in. You can clearly tell from the footage as well. Uhm, having fresh snow in the glades helps a lot. Riding them late afternoon with them trophed/rutted out by other riders/skiiers will make things very difficult, since that will force you to follow a path carved out by others, not to mention being unenjoyable. Stowe definitely has glade runs that are tamer than this, personally, I wouldn't be hitting anything this advance til I got the basics down.
