Thread: Classic Big Airs
12-03-2009, 01:25 PM #101
Dead End happens a fair bit, but the landing is a bit flat off the high point, so more often it gets skied more techy-style to smaller airs. Gets hit in the comps a fair bit though, off the top.

DAMN! Some of you fools SEND IT! This thread = the shit.Be careful about buying snowboard goggles for skiing. Snowboard goggles come in right eye and left eye (for goofy-footers) dominant models. This can make it hard to see correctly when skiing because you are facing straight down the hill, not sideways.

Lolo's LeapOur world is full of surrender at the first sign of adversity, do not give up when the challenge meets you, meet the challenge. Through perseverance comes the rewards, the rewards that make life so enjoyable.
Seize the day, trusting little in the future.

I know a lot has changed in the 18 years since I left Squaw, but Adrenaline Rock is NOT a classic air. It is a torture device for unsuspecting first year wannabe huckers (I still feel that damn thing in my knees). Flat landings =/= classic

These meadows cliffs are so small compared to some of these classics, but regardless you can send Oh Fuck a good 60 feet depending on time of year.
Just trying to see if the below are recognizable names to the Meadows folk. There are some others at Meadows that I know as (heights give or take some depending on snowpack):
-China Bowl (25 ft)- stares at you right when getting off the Mt Hood Express lift
-Upper Elavator Band (20-40 ft)
-Death (25-30 ft)- Fat to flat nestled in the trees skiers right of the rocky run next to Powder Keg
-Waterfall (15 ft)- Across the run (skiers left) from Death
-Roach Bowl (20-25 ft) - can send this one large though
-3 and a half (numerous lines) - in between 3 and 4 bowl
-Upper Launch Pad and Lower Launchpad (lower is more of a launch off small cliff) - on 4 and half bowl
-S&R Cliffs - In the private researve
-Picnic Rock - Hike from HRM trail
-Granite Rock - Hike from HRM trail w/ runout issues

And that vid clearing the double stager takes it to another level. The mayhem that could have happened if he just bumped/grazed the top of the second take off..

Funny people mention Alta, but no talk about cliffs at the Bird. Femur Rock? Broom Closet? King Kong? I think those are all classic hits at the Bird.
Here is Kenjiro Matsuo going HUGE at the US Freeskiing Nationals at the Bird, going massive off Femur Rock a week after the last storm, so it was pretty firm.

Torture Device - Yes.
--but took me until my 6th season to hit.....but that picture is the one and only (it did frickin hurt me).
Classic - also Yes.
Classic doesnt mean it is the best hit on the mountain (many of those are hidden and more secret), classic means under the chair, has a name, you gotta at least do it once (because after all, it is CLASSIC).
If you polled 100 Squaw skiers and asked to call out a cliff with a name at Squaw, most would come up with Adrenaline.Donjoy to the World!

I was going to say angry chair at bridger, but already mentioned (with video).

Got any idea what this one is? I think it is the top of Roach Bowl. Boarder is taking the short hop off and I don't have a better picture showing the rest of the band.
