In all seriousness tho, I would consider the Strief as the most dangerous ski run.

While the Eder video is amazing and the Strief is balls out insane (seriously that is an insane run) I think the closest Rampage equivalent would be the Freeride World Tour as it includes scoring on each skiers ride. Mostly Euro stops but there is a Kicking Horse stop this year and Revy used to be on the list.

Natural Selection has been pretty damn amazing and goes on for about the same amount of time each "session"

Natural Selection is cool, but FWT, especially the Verbier stop on the Bec de Roses is more impressive IMO, especially the skiers who can hit bigger cliffs and ride faster than snowboarders.

OOOhhhhh - I hadn't heard of that, excellent, thanks! There's a continual stream of great stuff coming from Jeremy Jones as well, but not contest based

Salomon freeski tv usually has some good stuff, they came up here to film a story on the Hankin-Evelyn area

BC skiing was gogin off so Salomon wanted a story on a unique a bc ski area, to sell more gear I assume

I asked the filmmaker if there is enough terrain to film a feature here? oh yeah,

I guess they can film a bunch of small features and make a film

They got all the back ground of the small town unfortunatley the snow sucked for the skiing part and the project never got finished

The Steif is crazy, I walked up it in the summer when I was 18 years old, had a couple of beers at the top, couldn't get up the courage to walk down a bunch of sections, they are so damn steep.

Now cover it in icy snow, strap on 2 planks that are 220cm long and try to go as fast as you can. INSANE.

There are a couple of sections that are grandfathered in for the World Cup, they are too narrow to meet current regulations, but it's the Hannankamm WC, so how could you stop it.
