Access to the jumping area is slightly uphill. For a young skier like Holden this can be a problem. There were a few times when he didn't have enough speed to make it up the small incline before he could head back down to the jump. On one unsuccessful attempt, Tyler told Holden to just head down the normal way and atempt the jump the next time. However, Tyler having made it up and over the small incline was out of sight of Holden. So he told Holden he would meet him a short way down the mountain where the 2 trails merged back together. Tyler headed down only to find that Holden was not there. Tyler looked around for awhile and then much to his surprise he saw Holden coming out of the trees where the jump was. After they got back on the lift Tyler asked Holden how he got up the small incline. Holden responded "you know how Yoda said do or do not there is no try?, well I decided to DO. I just got down on the snow climbed up that hill using my hands and knees." Tyler spent the next few minutes trying to hold in the laughter and not pee his pants.
Tyler was unable to get a video of the jump because they were night skiing and it was too dark, but these are from the next weekend when they went to Brighton Ski Resort during the day.
I put this one in for kicks because we think it is funny!
