Yo dudes, a couple of us BroBombers swung through there with Andy and Garrett. We were all super impressed, you dudes slay and the setup is awesome. We hope to bring way more people thru during SIA next year. We shot some footage on our point and shoots, check out the edit we threw together.
looks like it was a fun jam, i would have loved come down and sesh with you guys, but had to come down the next day and didnt want to make the drive twice. ill definitely try to make it next time. why was it all boxes and no rails?
I was there filming with the little point and shoot camera for brobomb and was insanely impressed by the skiers. Everyone there killed it. I really wish I brought my skis, but I didn't know Ruby Hill existed. Hopefully we can bring this idea to the east coast!
It's super fun!! Gets icy at night of course though. Most of the features are ride on, which isn't optimal, but it's still a good time and worth it for sure if you are near and don't want to drive to summit.
Pretty sure it's the same set-up. Once or twice a week (on tuesdays I think for sure), they run over all of it with the cat and then till and smooth out to soften it up. If you catch it after one of those nights it's not too bad until it re-melts and freezes again.
It's a liability issue, at least I was told. Ride on wide boxes lead to a lot less injuries. I don't know if there are stats to back that, but I'm sure it has some merit. They also want to make it as appealing to the public, including beginners, as possible. The project is in dire need of public support and financing and that comes with more people actually showing and interest. As I understand it, if that happened, they would be willing to expand and add a few more features.
