I was looking at it for years and was waiting for the right moment to hit it. This huge rock-drop works only with lots of snow.
Last season we had a heavy winter and it dumped hard the correct amount to give it a try. The location looked more and more appealing to me so as a closing session of the day I decided to take the risk and charge it.
In order not to overshoot the landing of two meters long, I chose to take less speed and make a big pop. The slope was too steep making it impossible. It turned out that speed wasn’t enough and I never made it to the landing. As a result, I sprained my ankle. I had to rest and stay off the mountain for two months.
Taking risks in life is good. When you win you get the maximum satisfaction. When you loose you learn more.
