 So do you ditch the bike midair, or brace for impact? Which is safer?

 @hamncheez: either way it's gonna hurt. Classic Gee-man. tup

 @hamncheez: I’m gonna say stay on the bike and hope some of the suspension makes it easier on your body as opposed to having whatever part of your body shatter that hits the ground first without the bike.

When Gee crashed a crevasse opened up in the mountain and is still there to this day.

 @hamncheez: Definitely stay on the bike, it will cut one huge impact into 2 much lighter (but longer) impacts: first you will "only" have to absorb the vertical impact, and only then you will probably fall and slide (absorbing the forward momentum until you stop sliding).

Where as if you jump off your bike and try to land on your feet, you will have both the vertical impact as the forward momentum hitting your body at the same time, all the forces being compressed into a split second (which is much worse). Your legs won't be able to absorb the impact, so you will just sag through them like noodles and your body will receive most impact.
This is assuming you can actually land your bike and you're not landing in an OTB position.

TLDR: If you go slow jump off your bike, but if you go fast stay on it (even if you know you will crash due to the impact being too big).

 @Mattin: Small jumps on bikes. Big jumps on skis. Crashing over the years adds up.

 Some awesome throwbacks! I don’t know if it’s a top 10 but really enjoyed making this one with Wade Simmons shot by Connor Macleod years ago on a snowy winter riding bikes and boarding Cypress Mountain.

 Ohh-man that is some good shit. Thanks for posting the link Tippie, you are The Man! The music in there is righteous.

 Mr Tippie, anything that has yours and Wades name in it is bound to be awesome and worthy of inclusion. Thanks for that nugget. Cheers!

 Where’s Casey Brown and Cam McCaul dropping into Corbet’s Couloir?

 Silvia Films edits are some of the best edits ever made. Winter trails and The Fall Edit as well as the one in Sun Peaks. I rewatch them each 2 times a day since they were released.

 My kids love Fabiolous Escape 2 and my daughter hates bikes. That’s the sign of a dead set banger.
