We will just have to see who can put the whole program together!! You have no idea what youve started here Paul....haha!!

This past spring I surely expected to see someone try after Micu (sp?) and Frenchie made it up on 2strokes!!!

Don't know who it'll be but I hope I'm there to see it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :beer;

I think if we can get the marmot (powdercurlgirl) up here and with a little triple black training involved, I'll have my money on her ! maybe a future segment in BOOST 5 !

Skadi

Ohhh man... What a GAWGOUS chutte that is and what fun it would be to top out.... Unfortunetly for me I jsut dn't know that I can get the 860 tuned that well... it would heave to be perfect conditions for me to top out on my 860.. i've tossed around the whle turbo idea but i jsut don't think I understand big Bores enough to step into turbos!! I'm one of those people, that if I don't get it I have a hard time riding it...

Marmo on the other hand... She's had her fun on a few turbos and i KNOW she has some training time coming up this winter! I say we get the marmot up there and Veedy filmin!! Depending on snow conitions SledPiggy and I have an unofficial date to meet up and hit some chutes. i also want to get out with one of the 'old boys' of chute climbing in that area and see if he can't show me some that are 860 sized... 860 and built by a novice!! ;) i ain't claimin to be a bad arse wrencher so she has a LOT of tuning that's needed...

We'll see what happens this year though. there are a TON of women that we don't even know about -like stray *****'s gf? who is this chica. riding a twistd turbo?? Sounds like she' on the sled that can tackle those chutes for SURE!!! can't wait to see what this year brings for SOOOOO many chicks!!

I think I have started something here. Sounds like it is going to be a race to see who will do it first. Little piece of advice, if you go for it be either first or second to hit it, makes it a whole lot easier when you can pic your own line. Oh and one more thing there is a right turn at the top, so you have to slow down for it or you will get yourself in a whole bunch of trouble. Seen alot of guys make it there numours time's and just can't figure out the last right hander. Hope I am there to see it get concord by one of you lady's.:beer;

IM 99% certain my girlfriend would try it(the screws in here head need some loctite, i think there all loose!:eek:).. but her sled aint gonna make it... anyone gonna pay me if she cartwheels my sled from top to bottom?

i think we should start some sort of gear/parts pot for the first lady to make it over... filmed, We need to see it... prolly wont happen till the better half of a season but i know there are some ladies that have the "balls" to make it, just not enough power.

Scott
10-12-2009, 04:11 PM
I don't doubt it will happen. Just depends on snoconditions, the sled...and how bad she wants it.

Skadi...860 or not...it should make it. Everyone will remind you that a stock REV 800 did it back about 3 or 4 years ago in spring conditions.

Skadi
10-12-2009, 04:20 PM
There are quite a few ladies that have enough power this season! So I'm bettin it's gonna happen!

Ski-dooin it let's get this GF of yours up some stocker sized chutes! i know those aren't as exciting as the big GNAR up in Revy but hey, not all of us can afford a turbo sled! I've still seen some prett epic chutes pulled on stokc sleds (in fact in this years 509 Bryan Bonnet pulls one of the years most EPIC lines on an M1000... seriously, it was a WILD ride and I can't belive Tom got the footage!)

Anyway, I'd love to see any of the ladies top out! Sledpiggy, Marmot, Brandy on a turbo? Stray *****'s GF? Ski-dooin it's GF on his sled! hahahahaha... Can't wait to see it. I also can't wait to see the double up action. Now DOUBLING up that bad boy would be a RIOT!!! Dang I wish I was one of those little girls that could get really small.... hahahahaha, there is something so much more fun about doubling!! -when you aren't forced to do it cause your sled is broken down that is!

As is probably the case with a lot of other ladies, I can't afford to replace my sled if/when it decides to roll down 1000m of slope or off the cliff. Yes, sometimes when I'm jumping it'll roll, but it's a calculated risk, and the run-out normally isn't that gnarly. I also can't afford a turbo kit.

That being said, if money wasn't an issue... :eek: I'm sure you'd see a lot more ladies trying. I'm guilty as charged, and usually the first one to be laying claims on outclimbing boys, but it has its limits. If it meant 50/50% of being without a sled for the rest of the season I don't think I'd risk it. Last time my engine blew and I was without sled for a week this spring it was a VERY bad week involving a LOT of Crown Royal.

Mens brains don't work like womens do, but hell, if someone else is footing the bill...

4- Mens brains don't work like womens do, but hell, if someone else is footing the bill...

She has some great points here!

1- yup. I do have insurance, but it'll take a month to get that figured out. And me with out a sled for a month? UH UH!

2 - Turbo really isn't in my pocket change budget either!

3- 110% agree.

4- Thank goodnes and ...someone wanna foot the bill? lol

I don't think the question is whether or not many of these ladies have the skills, steel ovaries, or desire....

Should have been done last year.

It'll be this year. :cool:

dang it MT!! now NO ONE will let me 'take their sled for a test run'! ;) Just kiddin... I think I'd have a harder time doing it on someone elses sled... The thought of wrecking my sled really doesn't freak me out too much. yeah, she's built but it's not like she some HUGELY expensive sled or anything. Plus where I live I can switch to dirt and ride the desert!! BUT, that being said i wouldn't take my sled up it unless she were ready... I'm not stupid and if the conditions aren't right or my sled isn't dialed in then it would be a yardsale waiting to happen. i'm sure it's been done on stockers, and i will admit I'm prolly not the rider they were!! So... we'll seee...

Marmo!! did you see you got the green light on lairds sled? well, ok, green light by someone else?!?! you GOTTA tell me when that's going down so i can come cheer you on!!! between mormo and I we can prolly smuggle a lot of lairds fav beer up!! plus i bet just about any other chick would be game to rooting them on and be willing to throw some beer at the cause! i dunno though... yer cat will be MIGHTY jealous!!

Its a no brainer that pictures and video do not do justice to any hill and the monster is no excetion.

I think my GF is retarted cuz if we showed up in revy and she got on my sled, she would give it hell, i just like my sled a LOT!! and dont want it to die, and this is all assuming my sled is even gonna work half decent!

i would say by yamafest the snow would be setup enough that its not who has the biggest of the big sleds... something with good mods.. reasonable boost levels(less then 20#) if the one micku boy put a 880 with nitrous over the top them im sure a moderately boosted sled could push it in the right conditions...

when is yamafest?

This should be exciting! There is a lot of hidden talent out there! I know 15 year old Q-Dog plans on taking it on this year to be the youngest over.
Mountain Mod Mania 7 has tons of footage of Monster this year at both YamaFest and the Big Iron Shoot Out. We covered better than anybody! From the top, bottom and out of the helicopter! Monster chewed up lots of people this year and denied a lot of challengers. Lots of carnage! Ladies, let me know if your interested and I'll make sure to cover it for next years movie!
Maybe we should line up a date for the ladies to attempt it, have a helicopter to pull the sleds out of the chute and plenty of support when needed.

I also have a bad itch for the smith lake chute!! that thing just calls to me! its huge. and theres some here down in bozeman that i need to hike and check the tops, but im thinkin are possible, and would make the 90* in revy look like a wide open straight shot.

Haha, Ya actually Im totaly into that idea. Nicole is the only person I would ever lend my sled to do it, just for the fact that I would love to see it happen more than anyone!! My encouragment is available for any girl to come try though! The trouble is I dont know if Nicole would actually be willing to put my sled into that situation. Her own setup would be a different story!! Maybe time will tell.

One thing for sure, if she did ever decide to take a run at Monster it would be a small group. Just enouph people to make it safe. Nobody would probly even find out till Veedy Posted the photage. That way a proper assesment could be done on the climb and the pressure is not the reason for climbing it!

Sounds to me like we could have a couple ladies over the top this year!

While I love my fellow riders, some of whom happen to be very talented chicas for sure, I am going to have to say Mini will be the first to make it up the Monster and it will happen this year. I say this because I have rode with her, I know her attitude. One ride a couple years back about 9 of us were trying to get up a gnarly tree infested root filled climb in Idaho. We all bagged it and went up another way. I started looking around after about 15 minutes of sitting up the top and couldn't find her. She eventually rode up already on the ridge top. She had stayed there by herself and pounded on it and found a route that got her to the top. This happened on a basically stock M7.

And while I know it will scare the chit out of her, she will listen to good instruction from those who have done it, learn from it, and she will Crest the top of Monster. The hardware she will be riding can do it, that is all that was lacking before. I hope to be there to see it and film it. :beer;

I'd have to second that as it seems she's been on a mission and training for it for the past few years! She'll probably be the first to do it on their own sled. Seems like there's only a handful of women who have sleds that could/would make it out (that we hear about anyhow). Amber, Julie Marquart on her turbo Apex and in the right conditions Emilie on her 860, Amy on her new M8 (turbo'n it right?) and Nicole on the M1000? Any others out there with the sled to do it? I know many who probably have the skill, but not the sled... and I'd think doing it on your sled and in the case of a few one you built would add an extra sense of accomplishment!! :cool:

We were talking about this last night and most of the guys who've done Monster have done so after numerous other chute training days. Has anyone topped out Monster as their first chute? The reason I bring this up is there are so many chutes out there that have been all the buzz (by men) in the past that have worked up to Monster. Google, Threadmaker, those in the airport, those at Turbo, the Bullpen? Have any of these been conquered by ladies yet?

Not trying to discourage anyone from Monster, HECK NO! I wanna see it! :D Just thinking outloud, wondering, pondering... lol MY intent is to ENCOURAGE ENCOURAGE ENCOURAGE! (in case anyone reads this differently!) :cool:

The reason I bring this up is there are so many chutes out there that have been all the buzz (by men) in the past that have worked up to Monster. Google, Threadmaker, those in the airport, those at Turbo, the Bullpen? Have any of these been conquered by ladies yet?

Not trying to discourage anyone from Monster, HECK NO! I wanna see it! :D Just thinking outloud, wondering, pondering... lol MY intent is to ENCOURAGE ENCOURAGE ENCOURAGE! (in case anyone reads this differently!) :cool:
Ahhhh yes...the ole "walk before you can run" thing. The problem with the big long technical chutes is that I'm still not sure if I take a breath from the bottom to the top. Plus the adrenaline is building the whole time your on the throttle.
I agree with you B, it's not as easy as pull up to the bottom and let er rip. I know lot's of guys that said they're going to go rip up some of the chutes you mentioned, but when they pull up to the bottom and look waaaaay up, they just couldn't do it. My theory is that if you actually like someone who's going to try it, then give them an out. That way you won't feel so bad when they crash because they feel they got pressured in to it.:eek::face-icon-small-hap
I can't wait to see some girls try it though.:beer;

Has anyone topped out Monster as their first chute?

Funny you asked and I have to say my buddy GSP did it May 8th 2009, but it was his second time in a chute (close enough!) He warmed himself up on the Airport chute and pulled the Monster minutes later on his stock 154" XP. He's the best "novice" mountain rider I've seen, it was only his first week in the rockies (he's from Quebec city). I think that not really knowing what he was into was a big part of it though, he did not think it was that bad until he got at the top??! Only after looking down from the top he realized what he accomplished :eek:

Mini or Marmot would be my guess as who will be the first woman to pull it off. There are MANY other women who could do it also but those two seem to be riding all out all the time.

How about the guy that went over on his girlfriends 03.5 Rev (bigger track otherwise stock) in Zooms film. That was funny, lots of big Yammy turbos having all kinds of trouble and he winds his way all the way over.

the hill was a highway!!! turbos were hittin it too fast and couldnt make the corner at the top.... speed is not always the answer...:beer;

I'd have to second that as it seems she's been on a mission and training for it for the past few years! She'll probably be the first to do it on their own sled. Seems like there's only a handful of women who have sleds that could/would make it out (that we hear about anyhow). Amber, Julie Marquart on her turbo Apex and in the right conditions Emilie on her 860, Amy on her new M8 (turbo'n it right?) and Nicole on the M1000? Any others out there with the sled to do it? I know many who probably have the skill, but not the sled... and I'd think doing it on your sled and in the case of a few one you built would add an extra sense of accomplishment!! :cool:

There are three other ladies I think can do it skillwise, one is Marmot because HP does not seem to bother her and she has mad skills. Give her an M series sled type chassis with around 250HP and she is up and over in anything but the deepest conditions. Having a boyfriend who already has been there and done that doesn't hurt either. The other is Skadi, where the 860 is lacking, she makes up for in strength and finesse. Add a little 40HP shot of NOS to the equation and at least in the firmer conditions it will happen. And the last is you Coyote Girl. You boondock exceptionally well compared to any man or woman, your tough when needed in the face of ugly, you handle your sled like a master at work. So I am thinking a little chute training on the right sled, and you are there. Well, maybe a really nice bottle of wine at the top might not hurt your motivation http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/4/4_1_204.gif (http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb001_ZUfox000)

I have had the Pleasure of riding with most of these Ladies mentioned and all have great riding skills(finese,athletic abbitlities,courage and determination). Like Neil has said it's up to them in their M.O. if they want to challenge the chutes, If you make this a big pressure deal it's no fun. I'll put on my cheerleading outfit and bring Chips for support.Cheers Red Dog.:beer;:beer;

I have been into the airport many times but never into monster. I think this coordinate gives superbowl?

+51 00 48 -118 22 50

Plug that in google maps, airport is just off to the side and then monster is next to that? I am sure someone more adept at google maps can post the point. Make sure to toggle on satellite image not maps. Still its disorienting without all the snow.

Which lake is that on the map? Is that the large lake below turbo?

I need to run SPOT into a few of these places so I can get my bearings on google maps.

Easy way to find it is from the top
Go just past Sugarbowl and bear right for a KM or so and you will come to a ridge line
You probably bump into the bowl around the top of McLarens mile, follow round the top (left) and you come to Monster, Irmens arm and then Gibbs Gash

The little black dot's at the bottom are sleds lined up to take a poke
Oh, btw, that's not the way in

Ya you stole it from me. LOL I put that up just after Gibbs did the Gash. Right after hedid it he originally wanted to call it Despair (its from a saying something like ripntear with no despair) but ended calling it gibbs gash. Irmens arm was still a virgin at time of pic.

Damn... Good eye! His real name is Steve.
We named him GSP because they actually trained in the same gym for a while, they look alike (well more than you think I guess??) and he's very ballzy (As Rene would say he's got more of that than brains anyway :rolleyes:).

Monster was the first chute my good friend CN ever climbed. He was on a 1995 580 Powder Special.

He didn't actually climb the chute, the minute he hit the bottom the chute came down to him.

As far as I know he is the only guy that has ever climb Monster for his first climb ever.

While I can't read everything I was able to get the just of what's going on on this thread again... funny to revisit it after the season and all hte talkin that went on last year!

I'd like to officially say there should be NUTHING from stopping ANY of you gals who want to try it from trying it!!! I poked at her and was unable to tame the trenches and heavy wet snow... booo-hooo... but I also didn't wreck and I gave it my best! If anyone wants to make a go at it get the right crew together and go in there and try it by golly!

this year... If i'm up there and it's not a trenched out nightmare AND I'm runnin race gas in the Pro (after I get her turboed of course) you better believe I'll make another poke at her! But, it's also not as scary now that I've gone up and turned out in her so the focus and drive is gone a little bit... Probably wouldn't spend a whole trip up there just to try to get that chute... Others, yeah, for SURE but it seems like I always end up over in the Turtle area when I'm there and am never over on the Monster side of things...

Anyway, can't wait to see some ladies in some chutes this year! I KNOW Amy Enns will be RIPPIN up some on her TM8 and I've heard some super sneaky rumors that Tina is HUNGRY!! Gonna be a FUUUUUN season ladies!!! Can't wait to see many of you out on the snow!
