theabortionatorI think the most ridiculous thing I ever saw was last summer. People sending giant cliffs on "pow days" aka it hadn't snowed for a bit and we got a few inches. There was a decent size one right up from the park. Watching people huck themselves off it when it was solid other than a dusting of snow. I was like WUTTTTTTTTT.
Some people are crazy though.
I guess it's the same as in the spring. If the snow is compacted to where you aren't going to blast through to anything under, and you got a little somethin somethin on top, plus a steep landing area go for it. But it still kind of sketched me out watching.
Brocka_FlockaWhy are you going to Summit County to "Drop Cliffs"?
Your best bet is ABay. Yes, vail has rocks and features, but that shit is scary flat and over-hyped. I've seen a bunch of knees, ankles and sternums fall victim to Vail's flats.
SVmikeA bunch of dudes on vacation with no backcountry experience dropping into big cliffs. What could be the problem? Please get educated!
