And a question...

My wife and I were at Steamboat last weekend for the first time. Good snow in the trees, but they don't make it easy to get back to those double diamonds at the top, do they?

The one run we didn't get to was DeSoto's Descent, a wicked steep chute off of the already pretty steep Chute 1. We didn't take that gate until the end of the day and our legs were not up for that thing.

My question: Anyone know why it's called DeSoto's? And what's the angle on that thing -- looked to be more than 45 degrees from the top, but that's always deceiving.
