Great Shot! Haven't been yet.

Thanks for the heads up. Seems like I've seen pictures of Topher Donahue with leathers and twig thin tele skis on this section of Broadway after skiing down the Notch. Crazy! But then, he "makes a living keeping things "lively."

Re: Great Shot! Haven't been yet.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked the picture. I recently read a comment on Mountain Project about "tucking and hucking off of Broadway." It was pretty funny. Even without that grand finale, I guess skiing down the Notch is for the likes of Topher Donahue. The average angle should be about 55 degrees, with four sections that are significantly steeper and no runout--unless you tuck and huck.
