So now I'm super cautious about going in again. I've also been in a special kids mini-pipe, which I found impossible to actually do anything in. (Crested Butte -- the choices were kids' pipe with maybe 5-6-foot walls vs. super pipe with 22-foot walls)

Does Nubs Nob still do a pipe? I know I rode one there a few times when it was over on that separate spot with the rope tow, which is now set up for racing. But then they moved it. Last season I don't remember seeing one, but I think it was early in the season when I was there.
The new website for Nubs doesn't mention a pipe; ridenubsnob

I ventured into Highland's pipe last year. I had no damn idea what I was doing. haha

I can go up and down the right side (my toe side, I'm regular) but I was having fits on the left wall.
