    That was Eric Barrone on Cerro Negro. I have his crash picture on my workbench cabinet, with the inscription Joe 0, Volcano 1

    That is that long and smooth? No clue. Blackcomb mountain has the altitude but the terrain would destroy you.

    I just googled Eric Barone and got this. I can't read it, but it looks like he went 172 km which is 106 mph.
