 That camera angle is wicked. Actually shows the steepness way more than forward facing.

 Rode down Coronet XC one February morning last year— wind nearly blew me off the trail! Wanted to ride the DH line but didn’t feel like dying climbing up again! Yes, I’m cheap! Even rode all the way up Coronet Peak Rd from Gorge Rd too!

 I mean if you spend the money to travel there its worth the extra few bucks to ride them all! (I know it's not always financially possible) but I hope you make it back to ride them eventually

 @cdkozeluh: Really wanted to pay for an uplift and a lift pass but Pedro’s lamb for dinner seemed like a better deal! Lol

 Sam B “kicks up dust..” when you throw too many options around for a title and everything starts to sound weird so you just go with what grandma used to say

 That trail looks so sweet. Terrain reminds me of Venosc in Les 2 Alpes

 I'd like to give some propers to the drone operator. That was incredible.

 no drone.

 I think it looks more like a camera mounted on the back of the rider in front of him than a drone

 it's not a drone. It's a backwards mounted camera on another rider. You can see dust coming off the wheels of the front rider, and at one point he crashes.

 I like how the drone casually talks to blenki during the ride lol

 @loose-g-raf: Yep. Drones get better and better.
