I ended up catching an edge and fell straight off the trail straight down a 35ft drop until my leg hit a tree and stopped me. I was sure I broke it, but I managed to stand and it seemed to be ok. Getting back up took me about 30min since the entire hill was ice. I ended up throwing my board up the hill until it got caught on a tree, then pulled my self up using the trees as an anchor. Def an interesting experience.
I'm very sorry. I'm glad your OK.......BUT........BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA That is truly epic! At least you can say you've done a cliff drop!

lol damn.

ive had a kid cut me off and ride over my board and get stuck. i almost bailed ontop of him, he must have been like 5-6. i just picked that bastard up and rode out like 20 feet out of ski school traffic then put him down. ski school instructer gave me a thumbs up as he passed us then saw him later in the day and he told me that quick thinking saved that kid and it looked hilarious.

I have only been to Blue while up at school. I cant complain, ice here and there on given days, but over all very impressed, lift lines come and go, great park features and many parks for all levels, no more half pipe other than that a great set of trails for all levels, I will not hate on other mtns for the sake ive only been to others in the MD. area, Wisp, Roundtop, Liberty and Whitetail. I would say Blue for the win, just check the conditions daily. There's an app for the iPhone called Ski Report and it has daily updates and allows for personal input on that day so that helps for those with an iPhone/iTouch. My $0.02

I was at blue yesterday and it was pretty good. It was a little slushy because of the rain on sunday but it was pretty empty, especially considering that it was MLK day. I know people don't like Blue, but so far I've had nothing but good experiences there.

ehh ive been to both pretty frequently, and i actually think they are both pretty good. blue mountain definitely has some ice issues and camelback doesnt but if you ride park the pass for the parks is annoying to get and cuts a good half hour of riding out. blue mtn parks are pretty nice though. both are extremely good just check the conditions before making your decision.

camelbacks park is horrible. if mountains have terrain parks i feel they need to have a bigger focus on progressive terrain and safety. At camelback there really is no progressive terrain at all there's a progression park on one side of the mountain with just 2 box rails and then if you want more you gotta jump up to the terrain park where there is nothign but narrow and skinny rails and some crazy things like wall rides and trash cans etc. I feel that some of these mountains having terrain parks just to say they have one is more of a burden than it is a feature. Look at Mountain Creek and boulder for example, they have park features for EVERYONE whether they're just getting started with ride on box rails all the way up to huge terrain like 22' quarterpipes and wooden features and there's stuff in between to progress yourself up to those features. At alot of these mountains there isnt much to get you ready for big stuff. Alot more of these mountains in the tri state area with terrain parks need to put a bigger focus on them. thats just my .02

Last season camelback got a new park manager, and they are definitely better than blues parks now. I agree they were awful in the past, but now with a new cutter, new jibs, and new crew it's tenfold better

you think so? i feel in the past their jibs were better they had alot more for people of all levels they used to have alot of ride on box rails, the ones they have now are skinny and hard to jump on, their park just seems neglected and harder to jump on than other parks. Its good they joined on with the Smartstyle program but they need to make more progressive features, also makes people want to go back to camelback as well, for terrain park i'm sticking to Creek if im gonna stay local. Best terrain park in the tri-state IMO is Boulder, i love creek but boulders park has alot more features to it and more creative too.
