I love the dumbass quote from the article that said that he wouldn't of done anything differently :smash:
Hmm, maybe next time you're venturing into some terrain like that you might want to ski with a buddy or 3!!
This guy had a death wish on so many levels...solo descent at 4 pm? Brilliant
Hope he doesn't end up getting a Darwin Award some day.
Old enough to be physically capable + young enough not to fully appreciate the risk = formula for disaster
"Accidents are also rare in Great Gully, Ober said. Few people go there because it's also so physically demanding and requires hours of climbing in exchange for just a five- to six-minute ski run."
Think I'll pass.
From epicski: "Being with someone wouldn't have made a difference. I actually think that had my friend decided to join me on Monday that it would have been far worse."
He really doesn't get it.
Nice...probably one of the most dangerous places to ski in the northeast. Right up there with tucks, except with nobody around to help you if something goes wrong. Everyone makes some sort of error in judgement like this at some point, and hopefully they survive and learn from it.
Mt. Adams would be an amazing spot for a ski area, 4000+ ft of vert from the summit down to the road, north facing, less than 3 hours from Boston, mostly on I-93.
A wind swept, rocky, treeless mountain in New New England....bring on the investors!
