I saw an interview, he said that he freaked out in the air and closed his eyes and prayed to god that he would be ok. Obviously he lost his balance because his eyes were closed but it probably saved his life.

Not exactly big air but still impressive in its own way. May dad skiing yesterday a couple of weeks before he turns 87, he has skied continually since the early 50's. Had heart surgery last year when a bee sting almost took him out so this was his only day this year. Also made him drive up and back.

+1 Bruce. Luckily the average person will never need to hire a "pro skier".


I think another reason buddy lawn darts so bad in the vid is because he probably hits terminal velocity and has no momentum so he just turns into a falling leaf.

Check this one out, 100' higher than the one Jim posted they say. Again, intelligent calculation seems absent....

I fail to see any skill in the 255-foot cliff jumping stunt.

He nailed that landing, didn't he? Now that's skill!

Nice pics Susan and Rick A!

Thanks for the post mrtrophy! Always nice to see the older generation still getting after it!

Wow Ryan.. I can't believe they didn't have spotters calling him off left. Did he even look at the line first??

Big Sky closed on Easter Sunday with over 100" at mid-mountain--this year Ladd decided to do the pond skim, and waited in line for 40 minutes to enter. He even turned down a $100 bill for his place in line.

Tons of speed and too much back lean produced this--it DID make the Bozeman news that evening with the Best of Pond Skim '14

got back up to Beartooth Pass this weekend. Got in the rock creek Headwall a couple of times and were lucky enough to ski about 5-6 inches of fresh on the Gardner Headwall yesterday morning.

Some shots from skiing over the last month and a half in Mt and Wy. I heard they had a foot+ on Beartooth Pass last week which closed the road for a few days.

got out again in early July up by Whitetail in the beartooths. Mike there has been no snow where I live since early may as the peaks only get to about 7000ft but the Big Horns are two hours away in why and the beartooths are about 5 hours away in mt. Both ranges have got great summer snow with beartooth pass offering roadside access at about 11,000ft. When the tallest peak in the state is a stones throw away at 12,799. Might be trying to get my 11th straight month in August if things work out.
