    What's the name of that line at Whistler?

    Just finished my first trip up north. Fantastic. But I did have a question regarding a line I saw while going up the garbanzo lift. It is a fair way up the lift, on the right hand side, and it comes out of the trees, following a white stripe down three super steep, smooth rocks, ending with a sizable drop at the bottom. Looks like it hadn't been hit in a long time, but it was completely nutty. Anyone know what the name is? I'll try to find a pic I took of it if I can find my sd card.

    Pretty sure they show someone rolling it in the last Coastal Crew film, Arvrival? I think you can see it in the preview trailer.
    Looked at it from the lift as well, it's nuts.

    yep, that's the one. Not sure what it's called, but I got the pucker factor just looking at it from the lift.

    Charging- Glad you guys had a great trip! It was SUPER rad getting to meet you two when you stopped by the office.

    That line that was built for Kenny Smith. He hit it for the film, then the landing was taken down. The line looks fun though, (as long as it's a dry day! Haha)!!!

    Thanks for the info! That line has got to be one of the most visually stunning lines I've ever seen. And yeah it was great to meet you and Sean. While I was up riding, I ran into Lance. After chatting a bit in the line, he wanted to take a run with me. Following him taught me two things: 1) I'm definitely lacking in my jumpy-jump skills, and 2) Canfield has probably the most friendly and genuine employees I've ever met. Hopefully I'll be back up that way soon and we can ride together.
