Snowmobiles can't outrun avalanches. Something to keep in mind.

There was an avalanhce last week at Sunshine that took out trees and shut the road for 3 hours. Just sayin.

Question

Wonder why this gaper didn't just outrun it? That's what I would have done...

LOL I don't give a shit if you can outrun it(which you cant). It's pretty much fixed in my head that you're one of the dumbest people I've ever had the bad luck to encounter. You have so little knowledge of snowboarding and I'm in awe that after 4 pages of people calling you an idiot, you are stubborn enough to still want to go hit the run. Go ahead and hit it to be honest I think people here are caring less and less about your livelihood.

I think there is a mis-interpretation of what he is trying to say. By avalanching a lot in bounds I think you are talking about sluffs. Related, but not an avalanche, and not nearly as dangerous. Still, they can carry you into stuff or over cliffs. That'll ruin your day.

Anyway, reading between the lines here, I think this is what the OP is actually talking about in bounds.

Well I can already see the headlines... "Another dumbass dies in the backcountry."

Please don't make it worse for the people that actually want to ride backcountry safely. If you do things unsafe, promote things unsafe, etc. it can potentially change laws for the rest of us. Do that in your own backyard okay?

Thanks...

This reminds me of the news every year that people get caught on the ice in Lake Simcoe every spring. Uhhhh, yeah. I can run over water in my sled, I'm a pro, look at me, PLOP. Dumbasses...

My god...my jaw just kept getting lower and lower as I read through this.

There's nothing wrong with being naive. It should be illegal to be this ignorant.

I am feeling this thread might be a joke. . . At least I really really hope it is

A mod needs to make a Hall of Fame forum and this should definitely be in it.

I created a huge avalanche and rode the whole thing out like a wave. It was sweet. Fuck, no obviously not. But sunshine was alright.
