 Anyone recall the name of the video that says something along the lines of "I can't wait for it to stop snowing, i wish dirt fell from the sky" and then it goes into a montage of opening day shots? Years later they made the dirt snow segment as a throwback to this original video. Used to watch it all the time but can't seem to find it anymore or remember the name.

 Ahh, that In Deep photo is awesome. Probably hit that pinch in double digits, then it bit back a couple seasons ago and landed me in surgery. We're in a love-hate relationship now.

 Oh man, I feel you there. In Deep has beat most everyone who has ever tried it. I went otb last year on day 2 in the park. 43 park days later, I tried it again and had a slip out wrecking my derailleur cage. At the shop, the bike tech was wearing an arm sling. I asked if it was a biking accident, and he looked me in the eye and said "In Deep". Damn.....

 @hypa: Yeah I went OTB directly IN that gut when I was slightly off line. It flopped me down on the ground onto a rock that's off the left (hence the line down the pinch rolling out to riders right a bit). I did some weird parkour move rolling out of it, but crushed my lower back. Wrist started hurting later but rode rest of the season. After season was over, went to get my wrist checked out, and had torn one of the main ligaments in my wrist in half. They humpty dumpty'd it together with pins and stitches. Took me a bit into this last season to hit it but we're all good now. Just definitely humbling when you hit something successfully a ton then puts you back in your place haha.

 I've been there only once, 10 years ago, but I recognized the photo instantly. It leaves scars, physical or mental.

 In which video does the opening photo belong?

 I don’t think it was from any of them. I think that was a EWS photo.
