Runs You Wimped Out On - Page 4

post #92 of 109

pleanty of runs.

I've backed out of pleanty of runs. I'll do most runs that people will do, but usually if I'm the only one on a peak, and I can't see the bottom due to steepness, I will not go down unless someone else goes first, or I've seen someone go down it first. Simply put, I'm not one to go down steep "unskied" terrain on a mountain that I'm not familiar with....


as far as runs that i've backed out of....

1) The Trail that goes down to The Fingers off of the K-22 lift at squaw.. (not the fingers them-selves I would never do those, sorry i'm simply not jumping a 50 foot clif on skis) I'm talking about the trail around it. I probably would have skiied it normally, but when I was there it was PURE ice. no thanks... I skied to the left of the K-22 lift and found some awsome powder it was worth backing out of...

2) I hate to admitt this but I did back out of Quail face at Homewood for a minute, simply because I coudn't see 10 ft below me due to bumps....but after a few runs I did it when I saw some locals do it. I simply didn't want to do it alone, since I've never been on it before. I'll never do it again though, the hike to get to it is simply not worth it...

I'm sure there's more but that's all I can remember at the moment.

Another vote for Corbet's. Only time I was there. Icy, landing looked hard, rocks looked hungry. Worse, in front of my ski buddies who were giving me serious grief - but not going themselves, of course.

Definetly looked over Corbet's! Very low snow year!

I did not walk aawy I ran away as fast as I could herringbone!

[2004/2005 season] This took some careful consideration and navigating... We backed out from jumping off the spot where my buddy is standing... too many trees and sharp pointy rocks. Who can name the spot?

Above the T-bar at Treble Cone in NZ, I hiked up to the cliffs on a snow day. While standing on the edge, staring 40-50 ft down at my landing before I even clicked into my skis, I heard two thumps behind me from skis being dropped to the snow. Then I heard two heal pieces click him in. I kept staring down at my landing only to be disturbed by my partner airing it. Here I thought I was being nice by waiting for him and the prick didn't even look first. Poached my pillow too. Damn swedes. No friends on a powder day, right?

Ever been side-by-side? On a snow day, there were about eight of us lined up above Kodak Rock, the bottom fifty-to-flat at the wood, below the cirque. A buddy and I could have held hands we were so close. But that would have been gay. we both shared a hot-tub in the landing though.

I always guess this but is it Stowe, between the Perry Merril and the Nosedive in the cliffs?

i dont think its in the east. The trees are the clue, ive never seen the tall skinny pines here in the east that are o so beautiful out west.
That and it looks steeper than what stowe has to offer

You're good! We skied through those rocks, but launching off where he is standing would suicide unless the snow is 4' deep and untouched... Just too many trees to risk it... at least with my kind of comfort jumping off stuff.
