Kicking Horse Chutes and Drops -- Specific Question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello, I'm wondering if anyone knows a specific drop, off of which I saw someone get way too much airtime for me to believe. I could see it from halfway up the Stairway to Heaven Chair, directly to my left, so it must have been on CPR Ridge.

 

This drop does a treacherous s-bend above ~150 ft cliff bands, and then you can drop out at the end, or it looks like ski through if you continue. His fall was maybe four seconds? I figure it must have a reputation and a name. 

 

Let me know if you are intimate enough with the area..and local ski bums..to know the lore around this vague description.

It appears that the drop is a variation from run 58, "Main Line".

I can't get it out of my head. I have to do it to be cured.

I've skied that line a few times, it's fun, but there's no way those cliff bands are 150 feet, they are probably 30-40 feet (from memory, haven't been to KHMR in a few years).
