So i had a VERY lucky break on friday at whistler - spanky's ladder. I was alone and first time in that area so i was just eyeing out where people where going. I headed out towards the left after you reach the top of the steps and made my own way through the middle before booting of a gigantic fucking blind cliff that made me free fall for 4 seconds landing very close to a creek and jagged rocks had i been going faster/slower. I was exteremly lucky that the fall was meeted with a thick room of powder and the moment i was falling the air and saw how huge the drop was i knew i was going to die.
Pic of the death trap.. mind you there was absolutely no signs or warnings to say that there was a cliff. There were no obvious tell tale signs to even show that there was a cliff ahead until you reach the edge and by that point its too late to stop... it scared the absolute shit out of me. It's hard to tell the scale of the picture but i estimate it to be around 20metres high. I pretty much got back up and was totally amazed i didn't die or even injure myself, except for the slight bruising that's now evident under my eye (i'm guessing from the impact from the helmet and goggle), although i landed on my back.
I can't tell exactly where i booted off but i know it was a point where you think your going fine and it's just going to slowly decsend to the point where it instantly becomes the edge of a cliff face and your facing your doom. Anyway i know where i landed where the bottom circle is, i'm just not sure which part of the top circle i fell from.
