ajw I've had plenty of moments like this in life (not limited to snowboarding) and even still, I'm pretty much just along for the ride. When shit like that happens, you don't think about "oh what's the best way to get out of this" or "I should huck it big and gap this thing". All you think is "HOLY FUCKING SHIT THIS IS GONNA HURT". So I'm not gonna rag on him for what he did.

mojo maestro Meh........I always follow tracks at an unfamiliar hill. That's how you find the "goods". Just look farther ahead.........ride in control........and don't be a dumbass.

Kenai That was some of the best flying I've seen yet. Right up to the point that you got killed.

The pic I posted? Yeah at least 60 deg, notice how the trees in the pic are facing the upper left side of? The angle I took the photo on actually makes the waterfall look less steep.

This was inbounds at Whistler around the mid-mountain level. Fun area but it was my first day there, and I didn't stick to my advice of scouting out runs before hitting them!

That said, my rule this year has been "hit everything" and although a few times I've had a pucker factor once in the air, I haven't hurt myself yet this year.

linvillegorge I know it's bad to laugh at the poor guy, but those were some phenomenal panic screams.

killclimbz I added the youtube embed of the video. I don't how you do that at Telluride, but dang that is a good sized fall he went for.
