Squaw and The Chimney went off in the legendary season of 2011. People were trying crazy things in The Chimney and pull them off. There were also some vicious wipeouts. None better than this snowboarder.
You can tell from the start that this guy has low confidence and isn’t ready for this line. His weight is all backseat, he’s on his hands, he’s inching forward… No bueno.
Then he pulls the trigger and…. Bam! Rock out.
It’s kinda hard to believe he lived….
“Unknown snowboarder almost dies when he hits a rock and falls off draft rock in the Palisades at Squaw Valley. 3/28/2011” – Jack Connell
