Cool video.

I have ridden there a few times and done a couple races also. Not a bad trail at all for the area.
Are those your skis?.....both of them?......Cool!

Wow Ohio is quite the trek for a DH race coming from Colorado.

I know they used to do races there occasionally... were they that big?

Here is a link to what I guess was considered the "expert course"

I used to live in MI, so besides Ontario Mohican was the closest DH more the most part.

The only course at the time I raced was the one you rode in your video.

Wow that's pretty crazy... There are now three trails there with quite a few freeride style hits built up.

Second half of the video shows some cool cable cam footage. This trail starts way rider's right and dumps you into the power line trail right below the big rock in the clearing.
