Highlights from 2014 at the Beav!
Speaking of shit-eating, this is a vid I put together a few months ago of all of my wipeouts (and one of my wife that was just too good to leave off). Obviously, it was for a contest to win some skis.
While putting it together, I discovered I have 3 stages of reaction to falls.
Didn't hurt, no big deal- involuntary "WOO!"
Fell in stupid way or in pain in the ass spot- sigh and shake my head in disgust.
Fall that involves serious pain- groaning in pain. The clip of me dropping into Exhibition Bowl on October 19 (~20" of unconsolidated snow over bare rock/scree) on the orange Atomic is the most painful fall I've had in years.
This is rather lengthy (13min) shot by my friend Chris on 2 separate days late last season. If that is to long, the best snow is from about 7:30 on. Mostly dust on crust conditions but some good snow the longer & further we hiked...
Hope you enjoy!
