VIDEO: Biggest Air of the Year at Squaw Valley? | The Chimney

SnowBrains |



Last Friday, Squaw Valley Ski Patrol gave us The Chimney at Squaw.  It was only open for about 10 minutes but that was enough time for 4 guys to hit the Chimney Sweep and for Josh A to buck up, show everyone up, and hit The Loft.

The Loft is a big air on big snow years and an enormous air in a low snow year like this one.

Josh lined it up, didn’t turn on the upper pad and simply sent it.  He wheeled around a bit on the landing then charged full speed straight through all the traverse tracks in Chicken Bowl and came out unscathed.

How big was this?  50-feet?

Was it the biggest air of the year at Squaw?  Most likely.  If it wasn’t, it was still likely the gnarliest thing hit at Squaw this year.  Props Josh.
