SFrubicon 02-27-2013 08:01 AM

That sounds like a freakin blast! Do they let boarders do it too? Or only skiiers?

SFrubicon 02-27-2013 05:03 PM

I think only skiers it was started in the 40's

Oldguy 02-27-2013 08:08 PM

The nuttiest part of it is that they also set up jumps...

SFrubicon 02-27-2013 08:47 PM

You have some serious confidence in you fab skills! Can I just convince them to let you pull me? I'll let go an you can jump the heep! I have zero doubt you will drive it with sufficient speed ;)

SFrubicon 02-28-2013 08:47 AM

Ed I believe you would go for it

Oldguy 03-01-2013 08:54 PM

Well, I figure it couldn't be much different than some of the air time I've done off moguls... I'm hoping that with the new suspension I'll be able to tune out some of the nastier things my rig does when it goes airborne.

Have a blast at the Leadville Ice Follies John. Think of me when you're watching the jumpers :)

SFrubicon 03-01-2013 11:40 PM

Thanks Ed ill keep you guys posted on how it goes

SFrubicon 03-02-2013 09:22 PM

Went today, some some wicked wrecks, I give all the guys props, the open class guys flying behind the horse hitting two gates, 3 5 foot jumps onto a flat landing and trying to collect 6 rings in 14.6 seconds behind a horse unbelievable. If you want to see something cool only in CO go to leadville at 230 tomorrow
