Skiing is a dangerous sport, which is a fact that isn't debated. However, the amount of danger is something that has been talked about in almost any group of ski friends. This includes that old joke of a diamond in one state would only be a square in another.

But, we all know there are runs that need to be respected no matter what. The folks at The Active Times put together a list of the 15 most dangerous in the world.

Corbet's Couloir, Wyoming Grand Couloir, France
Harakiri, Austria Olympiabakken, Kvitfjell, Norway
Christmas Chute, Alaska La Chavanette, France/Switzerland Border
Mad River Glen, Vermont Silver Kings Runs, Waashington
Backside of the Valluga, Austria Great Scott at Snowbird, Utah
The Saslong, Val Gardena, Italy Delirium Dive, Cananda
Tortin, Switzerland Body Bag, Colorado
La Grave, France

Some of these are world famous, some of these might not be as famous, and some of these might be in your back yard. Ski Rex is always a little giddy when a Vermont mountain makes a list like this. Hometown pride!

What do you think about this list? Are these choices on the money or are there other runs out there that demand even more respect than there?

The fact that getting to the top will take more than half an hour should hit at how dangerous it is to go down this trail.
