Nah if I had to die riding I would want it to happen like this.
Riding up to a huge ass kicker way too fast and get caught between the wheels and wire of a chairlift and have my head taken off.
At least it'd be quick

Why would a booter have a wire and wheel on it that makes no sense at all.

Ok I worded it badly
I mean fly off a jump too fast and really high, hitting chairlift.
The wire the chair hangs from and the wheels on top of the towers as it passes.
I mean get caught between those

You would more likely have to do it into the bull wheel not those as it's next to impossible for those to squeeze you. Now a Bullwheel on the other hand will crush you it did it to one of the little shop kids here in Breck he's now held together with titanium.

Plus there's always the possibility you'll end up with superpowers instead of dying

Last year in Japan - niseko my mate and me had built a small kicker in between the trees because it was a miserable day and you had no visibility, my mate had a small bail off it because he didnt see the lip but I had to have a crack and decided to straight line it, needless to say i missed a bump in the snow and went flying, he managed to get it on camera, i was fine but im sure i did a few flips

Years ago I took a trip out to Big Sky with some friends and people I went to college with. One guy who was along on the trip just happened to be a fucking douchebag. Absurdly arrogant and completely obnoxious, two minutes with this dude and you would probably want to choke the shit out of him. Anyways, a buddy and I get stuck on a lift with this fucktard and the whole ride up heís heckling me for a race. I should mention that he is SHITFACE drunk. Iíd have said near the edge of blackout. I agree to the race cause I donít like him and I want to see what will happen. We both take off straightline and I donít know how fast I was going when I brake checked, but I was fucking scared. This dude had no such fear (drunk as shit) and continued picking up speed for about another 30 feet before eating shit. I didnít see what happened to make him fall, all I know is from my vantage point it looked like a cloudy ball of snow rocketing down the hill with some dark shape in the center pin wheeling around as bits of gear went blowing off. This is already too long so Iíll wrap it up. Seeing him fall Iíd have thought he was dead, but he was fine. Shook up as hell and had a bloody nose for some reason but skied away just fine.

I want to go slowly with syphilis that I got from a hooker in the bathroom at a Breck bus station.

A couple seasons ago I went with a couple buddies for a day trip up to big bear. The snow was awful, all artificial, combed, and icy. But seeing how flat I was I thought it would be fine for me to straightline this blue run. I was bombing it, and since I was pretty new, I was just bombing the run with my board flat to the snow, not on either edge. I caught a lump or something and went tumbling... ended up hitting my face hard on the ice on the side of the run and getting my side pretty scraped up too.
