That looks like the hill in Orleans. I'm not sure exactly where it is though.

LOL that's not the accident... BMWconnect is right. It's off Clyde? Behind the Carling CT.

It's a blastie. That was the first test of the GoPro. Shitty low light.

That might be the Carlington Hill.. if so, Steve, it is about 5 minutes from you! It's walking distance from my place through some trails. They don't run the t-bar cable anymore though.

It's hard to tell from the video though. GT Snow Racer FTW! I was on one of those last year getting towed behind a four wheeler!

I say we should all get together on a good snow fall and do some downhill BMW GT racing! I'll buy a GT and some decals lol.

So much fun!

When I was younger, the ski hill near my cottage used to end their season early (there would still be lots of snow). So Dad would tow us with his 4-wheeler through trails to get to the hill, then up the hill, then we would GT race down the ski runs.

it was insanely awesome, but you quickly realize that at those speeds the brakes are useless.

Ha, I had an "early model" with the giant dual metal scraper brakes. They stopped you, and they'd f*cking kill you if the thing flipped over and ran over you. They were like giant ice picks.

I remember those from kid days. I hated when you stomped hard on those and your foot would slip off and get caught between everything and they the GT would drag you under and it would end up in a horrible crash that your cursed god for ever giving you a hill to go down on in the first place. God I hated those GTs!
