    The segment you're talking about is Seth pointing it from Million Dollar and airing all of the edge (2nd time). But the Fredo's huck is at about the same time.

    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.

    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

    Yeah, I've been known to tap the lip and double it when it's deep. I stand corrected when I said it was a heavy snow pack as the other pic shows it about as covered as I have seen.

    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

    Air Jordan was named after Jordan Williams, an ex-ski racer, now ski coach and Whistler legend. I don't think he's ever worked for the mountain... but he definitely dropped it to impress a lady friend.

    X2.

    I know people here bring it, but fuck me I thought I was decent up in the mountains compared to most... not now. Now I feel like the bottom quartile.

    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.

    So, I both agree and disagree.

    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.

    agreed, by no means giant, but fun and certainly a classic. The fact that patrol can only be hit 4 weeks a year (before it is buried by wind loading) further endears it

    haha, that is a cool list. i have to say that none of them are probably classics to anyone but you, me, and like two other guys on this forum.

    Nice. I would probably consider that my first cliff too. Nothing like some of the other drops in this thread, but you can make a good huck out of the wind lip that forms between the trees. Classic on Hood given the visibility from the lift.

    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.
