Default Respect to you true mountain freeriders.

I applaud you guys, I have no idea how you do it. I almost pooped myself when I got stuck in a glade run all by myself in Vermont. I was lost for 2 hours. I eventually made it down though and regrouped and went back up the lift ^_^ How the hell can you handle going down a real freakin' mountain though! When you have to hike to reach an area to start riding down it, you are out of my league. Making your own trails is cool, but I'm just too scared of messing up and getting lost again - but for real next time. It seems fun and beautiful but just the thought of falling down a hidden shaft or something in all of that pow and huge terrain... I don't know.

Heres a video that was filmed the day that I was their.

You serious, bro?

If you're inbounds, just go downhill. As long as you don't duck a rope, you'll eventually get funneled out onto a run leading you back to the base or a lift.

Yea but for my first experience in Vermont EVER and my friends and I got the great idea to go balls deep in a blocked off run... stupid decision = stupid result. We should have figured it was too difficult by the fact that it had a 5ft cliff drop into the glades. But it was still inbounds, there was just trees everywhere(obviously) rocks, drop-offs, there was even a river flowing through the middle(it was a drainage ditch) and so if we slipped we were screwed. WE all split apart somehow. They got out in 15min... I took 2hrs T_T

And yea, I got stuck in a spot and I had to unstrap to get out of the pow heap and I never had a flat enough area to re-strap in at. It took about 1hr50min to find that flat enough area.

This is your problem. It's easier to get strapped in and riding again on an incline, not a flat spot. And a 5 ft drop is a rock, not a cliff. Please do yourself and everyone else a favor and DO NOT come out west. In fact, just stay in the park and on the groomers. Leave the pow to the people who know what to do with it.

I was gonna say that 5' isn't a cliff but I got beat. If you ever make it to vail I'll have my 12 y/o show you around. He has a couple mild runs with rock drops around 10'. I'm about to put up a clip with this run in it.... It does scare true intermediates.....

Here is some back bowl footage.... The lady he is ridinig with couldn't stay up so he had to wait a lot and kinda chill a bit. She's a nurse I work with. The end of this video he is dropping into some trees that's kinda continued to the next video I'm uploading now.....

Have you ridden in VT? Don't knock it till you try it.

Any rider from Stowe can hang anywhere, I mean anywhere that you ride in WA.

Here is the other video. I mixed in some jumps and boxes for the hell of it since it was all the same day and sometimes the same runs as the tree stuff that empties into the top of the park..
