Defy Reality. Own the Planet.
In our forth SSX iconic Terrain blog, we walk you through the subtleties of Ridge Runs, Multi Ledges, and Staircases. How are you going to manage these to get to the bottom of the mountain?
Every decent has to begin from somewhere, so why not start from the very summit? The Ridge represents the very top of the world, only accessible via helicopter and a brave, well-paid pilot! From this point, the only way is down. There are two routes to the bottom - either the hard way or the fatal way. You want a winding thrill ride along a narrow crest overlooking oblivion? Check. You want some life-or-death jumps to shortcuts? Check. You want to try this in harsh visibility? Check! You want all this? You better earn it. The pilots won’t just drop any newbie onto the pinnacle until you demonstrate you’re worth the fuel it takes to get there.
For those who are still earning their reputation, the Multi Ledge is a good place to spend your time. We take the Ridge, spice it up with some crazy jumps and options, throw in some exploration and drop you right in the thick of it. Imagine it as the ‘thinking man’s’ race track. There’s not much real estate for mistakes, but plenty of opportunities to show off your skills. Keep your eyes peeled for some shortcuts accessible to the brave, but don’t forget about the rather large drop off to the side….
When Pillows grow up, they become the Staircase. Not so much soft and fluffy snow, more gnarly exposed rock and giant cliff drops. Followed by another cliff drop…followed by another cliff drop. Try to time your landings though, since there’s plenty of ways to scuff up your undercarriage if things go a little sideways! Not that the veterans will be worrying about that (too much) as they bust out a string of tricks equal to the amount of air-time they offer! Just remember, some of that snow might get a little lively on landing…. we wouldn’t want to trigger an avalanche in this environment, would we?
