Video: Rope Drop at Fernie is Complete Mayhem

Watching this rope drop at Fernie Alpine Resort feels uncannily like an animal segment straight from the BBC. For a second the mayhem resembles a bunch of frothing hyenas about to strike out in the Serengeti—all it needs is that David Attenborough voiceover. I’m sure no slope was safe after that crowd had its way with it.

Kidding, kudos to everyone getting after it. But if this craziness isn’t your style, thankfully, Fernie’s got four other bowls to pick from. 

There is a spot off Spanky’s Ladder up on Blackcomb where the reason the patrol rope it off is because it can bury you.  It is a hole you can’t see when it dumps pow.  Rare for Blackcomb, but it happens.  There is also “Australian Gully” on Cypress Bowl; this is where some rope jumpers died due to a creek bed funnel that was another hole.  That one is out of bounds for a reason, off the peak chair and I used to dread hearing a response to my rope patrol shout outs on Sunday night shutdown. Luckily only silence was the response.  I was the last one down the hill on most weekends, in the seasons I was on the volunteer patrol; moonlight and twinkling city lights with the silence of the chairs turned off made up for the wet, rainy, unpaid nights.  Next life I will go pro patrol.

A good practice is necessary to do things like this. The person doing should need to handle the climate with their medical condition photo clipping service . Many peoples like to follow the ride. The ride is dangerous so need to be very careful.
