Video going 43 mph
 
Going through some videos and thought I would post this.
It not wildly exciting, but its the fastest that I have been able to record.
I thought I was cruzing pretty well.

Camera is Contour and GPS is Garmin.
(If you look close, you can see looking down at my GPS on my arm to see my speed)

Try getting off a green run with a bunch or beginners and slow signs. Going fast is fun but you weren't going THaT fast and your doing it in the wrong place.....

What resort is that?

CK93 01-03-2014 11:38 AM

Nothing like people full of piss n vinegar to bash on your post is there....

Anyway, the resort is Keystone in CO. The run is off of Northpeak.
Prospector is the trail I believe and I am pretty sure it's a blue run.
It did get pretty steep, but hard to tell on camera. All the surrounding runs are black, I think this one just wasn't quite steep enough to be a black.

Also, I never said I was going "FAST". I just said this it the fastest that I have recorded. It was a good fun run for me though. I am by no means as good as Travis Rice, so my video's won't come close to his either.

Cheers!:tongue4:

i wish i could go 5mph,,,,no snow yet! at dodge!

You're braver than I am. My fastest recorded is only 47mph/76kph but I wouldn't ride that fast on a run as narrow as the one you're riding. I like it wide open and empty when I "bomb" a run.

That looks like a nice long run, can't wait until I get to ride out west.

I knew just from the still where that was......ugh....those runs are a bunch of human funnels....

Slow zone, icy hardpack, poor technique, narrow run.

Slow the fuck down, moron.

Take a look at Keystones fatality rate, year on year.

CK93 01-03-2014 02:35 PM

wow, according to other people, I wasn't going fast at all.

So which is it?

This thread is starting to get interesting :yahoo:
