Classic Big Airs
Every mountain has one. That one drop that's so big and burly it only gets hit when the conditions are perfect...and even then only by a select group of brass-balled crazies.
Post up pics, vids and/or relevant beta of your local monster hit.
I'll kick it off with Air Jordan off Peak Chair in Whistler...

I'm gonna throw some EC stoke here, and say the Waterfall at Stowe.
Here's my buddy Phil front flipping it sometime last winter.

Did Jordan work the lift line chickies for room keys/drink/digits?
I hope so!

The Beast at Baker is pretty classic......Though it gets sessioned on a pretty regular basis now.

Fantastic -- I was somewhere in that Peak chair lineup for that last drop, and ya, it was a frontflip, dude nailed it. Now I know who it is ;p

On the first vid of air jordan, some douche at the end says, "that's exactly what I predicted" after the guy misses the second landing. What a shithead.another Handsome Boy graduate

I caught an epic session of AJ where a guy pointed it from the top, no speed check on the first drop and landed at least 70ft out the second stager. Same day I watched a boarder completely beater a sketch line skiers right of Air Jordan. I thought he was a goner into the trees but somehow he pin-balled through them and popped up unhurt.Move upside and let the man go through...

the Butte used to have a pretty decent jump under or close to the Quick Silver lift when it was a double chair. don't know if it's still there now with the quad?
it wasn't any big huck, but was decent and good for spectators.

I've heard an urban myth that somebody doubled up Jordan top to bottom; no middle landing. Slinky maybe?
My first time up Whistler in 98 I saw a guy drop the big cliff above the Franz's goat path.
The most impressive line off of Jordan I've seen was the big drop in, straight line, perfect landing and then the guy went for an air over the trees below off a built up wind drift. Just clipped the top of a tree and went for a major spinner.

Angry Chair at Bridger only gets hit once in a long while. It's a very long way down to a not too perfect landing, and you stare at it up above PK when riding the chair all year long.
Wow, I didn't realize that Eric front flipped it last year. That crazy spunion.
