What makes a good day of skiing even better? When close friends heckle the sh!t outta you and convince you to do something wild and crazy. To do something to progress you as a skier and a human. Above is a throwback to Pyramid Gap in Grizzly Gulch where a dismayed skier hilariously waits for 30 minutes before being convinced to huck his meat and sending (but probably not stomping) a huge bakflip over the gap.
Remember “I don’t want to pull a stomach muscle” is no excuse for not sending a backflip!
Tanner could have used a little more motivation back in 2005, when he came up a bit short on Pyramid Gap resulting in a pair of broken ankles:
When have your friends pushed you to the next level? Was initial bantering as good as the above??

You can see Chad’s gap at 2:10, in the background, upper right of Pyramid
T-Hall busted his ankles on Chads Gap, 1/3 of a mile from pyramid gap.
Nothing like some good old heckling!
