dbostedo-Back in the 80's Winter Park was divided into two areas Winter Park-Mary Jane. For what reason I don't know. Mary Jane was always known as the side to go to if you were the serious bump skier. WP/MJ turned out a lot of top ranked Mogul & Freestyle skiers over the years. With terrain like that it's no wonder!
That was 30 years ago when this filmed and it will always be one of those days I will personally remember. I had not watched this sequence in over 20 years and it brought back some great memories of the shoot.
It was late March or maybe even April, Soft bumps with rattlesnake lines and a damn fun crew of bump skiers, If you were 3-4 or 5th back in the line you couldn't see a damn thing, Slush was flying and you were going balls to the walls. That was trusting your buddies in front of you and keeping your foot on the gas peddle the whole time. There were some great times spent with that posse over the years. Glad to say I'm still friends with all of them and have had a chance to ski with a few of them again over the past 5 years. Thanks Stumpy for capturing and creating a new generation of ski films. Now, if only the legs could still work like that!!!!
Neat - thanks for the inside info! (And I understand the WP/MJ thing... it was a bit of a dig based on the Pet Peeve thread I mentioned. )
