This video contains infinite detail on how Todd Ligare almost breaks his neck hitting rocks in B.C. Check out how close his noodle comes to hitting these rocks. In the POV view, it’s hard to understand how he doesn’t hit the rocks. If you look at his bomb hole closely, you can see that he kinda does hit the rocks a little.
Papa Jordan is located on the Pemberton Ice cap and is basically Air Jordan on steroids. I first want to say that Ian and Todd both have large cojones. This line is insane, if you mess up on the first drop or hook an edge on the mandatory right turn it’s not gonna end well.
Air Jordan off Peak Chair on Whistler Mountain is maybe one of the most known double stagers in skiing. Almost every powder day there is a line of skiers and boarders waiting to test their luck on AJ, I’d bet that 99% of people who hit AJ fall, but there is the occasional stomp and even better the -only happen once line- of airing the whole thing, Treadway (probally 90+ feet). With this in bounds “gotta hit Jordan” attitude you can almost guaranteed that its gonna be shrelped and not worth it…But then again Papa Jordan doesn’t seem worth it either.
