Thanks, I might check it out. I have been in the pipe a handful of times, but not recently. I took a park/pipe lesson about 7-8 years ago. Then later that season on a trip to Lake Tahoe, on the first or second day of the trip, I was feeling confident and went into a big pipe and twisted up my back, which caused me problems for the rest of the trip. 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.
Sooner or later your legs give way, you hit the ground.
