The Best Sled Hill Around Black Mountain

We were introduced to one of the best sled hill we'd ever seen this past weekend. We all had a chance to go down, but 2 "runs" were especially worth mentioning. First was Amy: on her first trip down, she managed to rotate herself backwards only to hit a snow board ramp, launching herself high into the air, backwards...still a bit sore from that one. Unfortunately, we didn't get this on camera.

Next, Chris Maslin and Phil went down together on a neighbors homemade sled. This was no ordinary sled, but one that was made of 2 old skis and some scrap lumber. It was close to twice as fast as the other sleds we had. But man it was fun! See this video to get a taste... Oh by the way, you can see Maslin bail at the last minute, thinking we might hit a stone bench at the bottom of the hill. When the video stops you can see how close we were to disaster.

Although we missed Amy's big jump, we did get her follow up run down the hill. Notice how upset Lily gets. She saw Amy bust the first time and didn't want her to go again....

For the record, Phil didn't "make Amy do this."
