Hilarious.

:o Will and I were headed up Flagstaff Sunday Feb 1st on our way into Days and when Will stopped to wait for my slow ass to catch up he was looking toward that line. I pulled up, said "see that zig-zag line out on that face? That's the Lighning Bolt, people ski that every few years....." Little did we know JJ was up on top of it getting ready to drop it.....

JJ ticked off a few of the biggest lines I have on my todo list in a few days. Dude is on it for sure. I'll never do the Lightning Bolt. Superior, yes, Needle possibly, but LB, no flippin way... :bow:

When is Jones going to ride something steep and exposed. I mean come on, you never see that guy on anything steeper than "holy shit that's steep". He really needs to step to some "FKNA if I jump right here I'll land 80 feet down hill steep" to impress me. :wink:


Jones IS the man, end of story.

sheeet mang, what you didn't see from that photo is I rode down that with my split in tour mode, aired over the 200FT drop doing a sweet stalled out daffy, reverted back to board mode mid-air, and landed switch. :doobie:


Jones is the man for sure... how about his bud who went 1st... big respect to that feat.

Damn! Impressive. Funny, the second photo makes it A LOT less steep than the first.

It's crazy. I used to race against JJ every now and then back in New England in the early 90's and to see him have progressed to the level he's at is awesome. :headbang:

I'm pretty sure he rides his Rossignal JJ pro model with a split kit.

From his blog and courtesy of Andrew McLean: Andrew Maclean’s book the Chuting Gallery had this rated at 60 degree’s. The hard part with this is the steepest part is the middle half above and through the choke.”
