Yesterday at Bird Springs Pass


A few DS Junkies gathered at Bird Springs Pass late yesterday afternoon after spending the first part of the day at Weldon. BSP delivered the goods with gusts in the 50s and speeds in the upper 300s, and it wasn’t even snowing! You know you have a DS problem when you leave 35 mph winds at Weldon for something more exhilarating.

Here’s a video of Spencer killing it at BSP with his K2m. He went for 384 mph. Bruce and I also flew my standard K2m (about 88 oz), with Bruce providing landing services. I got a 340mph and handed Bruce the transmitter right when the good air disappeared. He got a 332 mph. Josh got a 281mph on his Kinetic before the wind picked up some more.

Bruce got some crazy speed on his light D40 too – I think it was 226 mph but I’ll check with him.

I don’t think anyone else shot video, but watching these guys do their thing on a double-black diamond slope was really awesome!

Thanks for sharing. I see the DS vortex zone was in full effect at BSP

Love that you guys doubled-down on an already good hand at Weldon to better it at BSP

You guys are hardcore DS junkies

Awesome flying

I have a confession to make. I keep watching these videos on my phone with headphones on just to hear the sounds of a 2 meter kinetic defying the laws of physics. It was one of those handful of DS sessions every year that will stick with me for a while.

How about today at Bird Springs Pass?? Epic day out there. Will post videos later but Bruce got another record with the D40 at 269. Rich PBd at Weldon at 316 before we left. Bruce went 434 with a K2m! Spencer went 395 or 396 with a K2m before I left but was still flying when we hit the road. I was holding up the rear at 364 mph with a K2m.

Edit: just talked to Spencer. He went 441 with a k2M. Bruce went 436 with his k130.

Here's the video of Bruce's K130. I was radaring and videoing at the same time, so be gentle. The sounds get really cool about halfway through.
