    Biggest Crabapple Hit--how long?

    I was wondering how long the largest Crabapple hit in whistler is? Does anyone have an idea? Are there any actual measurements? I am searching for searching for an easy jump (relatively speaking) that is 40 feet long; its a mid-life crisis thing...

    On the last one in the series there is a fairly large white rock at least half way down the landing. If you watch seasons and pay close attention (or slo mo) you can see it. I landed on that thing after I followed someone faster than me into it. That was one of the coolest feelings Ive ever had riding.

    Dont think its 40 ft though.

    Those jumps have a really mellow knuckle and long landing. It's also not that bad landing to flat on all of them. The length could vary by 15-20ft.
    Keep the Country country.

    I'm sure you could get to 40 feet off of them and still have some landing left.
    post the question over in nsmb.com whistler forum and someone there should know how far to make the tranny and how far to the bottom.
    You better be solid on all the other jumps there before you go charging down it. I like to get my boost on doing upper a-line and cutting over.

    They are progressive, the last one I'm sure can be sent close to the 40' mark. Real smooth lip and long easy landings.That piece of plywood over the little creek after the last one sketches me out though! It was wet and I almost lost it on that thing!!

    They're big, but I don't think they're 40 feet.

    To me they're way easier than some of the tables on A-line, since you can just send them. Stuff on A-line might kick you way too far, and you have to know each jump. First run at speed down Crabapple Hits was no worries though.

    Definitely my favorite jumps just for the sheer size of them.

    Here's a pic I found on Flickr of them:

    Ya, Crab Apple is def. one of my favorite jumps lines in Whistler... you can carry SO much speed thru them. The first one is about 10" with the last 2 over 30". Super fun for sure!!!

    I dug thru my Whistler footage and threw this together for you. Nothing incredible, but it'll give you an idea of how sick the line is.

    I'm in the front in the white kit, then the few hits at the end. The rest of the Go Pro footage is my bro Bernie followed by Pound...

    Apparently even Canadian's have a tendency to go off on tangents while on internet forums. After like the 4th comment, it starts talking about why some guy died and doesn't let up.

    already saw forum

    The above mentioned forum is where I started. Some guy thought that is was 40-50 feet, which didn't sound right to me. I didn''t even think that they were 40 feet, which is why I wanted to ask around. I am trying to find an "easier" 40 foot jump as a gimmick to conquer the idea of turning 40 this year. I just want to dominate the number 40 or give 40 the chance to have its say. Any other suggestions? Please no psycological advice.

    the bottom ones are alot bigger than 20 for sure. they are smooth, best line in whistler for sure. i like DM to aline alot better than pure aline.

    hit up dach dank. Then you can see a real 40 foot dub in action. Steep lips and landings, perfect for absolutely massive ****ing air.
