…90-foot gap…

“Safety is our No. 1 goal, but it is X Games.”

The X Course – a 90-foot gap jump at the bottom, an elevated monster gap in the middle and near-vertical banked turns with 13-foot walls built with a Zaugg pipe cutter.

Thursday practice, some Skier X men were launching 150 feet — half a football field — off the 90-foot gap at the bottom.

Seven skiers and snowboarders pulled out of competition.

Corley Howard, course builder:

“This is not an open competition.You can’t have Johnny from down the street pay a hundred bucks and go down the course. This is the top one percent.”

…two-one-thousand…

…four-one-thousand…

…how much airtime is that?

…and still not landed yet…
