Shaun White's private Silverton halfpipe

FIRST LOOK: Shaun White's private pipe - Red Bull Project X from Red Bull - Video

so they make it look like you 'have to' have a helicopter to get to the super secret location but everyone round here knows you can just ski up to it. he even gets a snowmobile tow to the top of the pipe.

Even Silverton Mountain had to sell out to the park riders they harshed on early in their existence.

Next time anyone see's that pompous little spoiled redheaded stepchild freak, tackle him and call 911. The little ass has walked out on so many restaurant and bar tabs in Colorado, someone should hang wanted posters for his arrest. Better yet, forget the wanted posters, just get a rope. This ignorant little boy should grow up or go home to mommy and daddy, who as we all know, bought him his gold medals. Colorado's gunnin for ya Carrot Top!!!

If I had that helicopter, I certainly wouldn't be wasting my time in that half pipe with all the sickness of Silverton around me....well maybe I would hit in on my way back to the heli pickup.

That thing pretty clearly sits in a big run out zone. I bet they bomb it and use the fallout to make it.

I wonder how much work it is to remake it after it gets slid upon.

So, I assume it sits on N. Forest land. I wonder how their permit works? Can anyone just go ride it?

I think thats the lamest thing i've ever seen on so many different levels. one thing kayaking has on skiing/snowboarding is that the top athletes have humility and class, it must have to do w/ the humbling nature of boating. i will never buy a red bull again. some one should kick that guys ass!

Riding a halfpipe at Silverton Mountain is like jacking off in a whore house.

Some friends told me about this half pipe and saw pics of it last year.. A sweet pipe in a sweet spot.... Also no you cant ride this basin unless you are with the silverton heli guys..

I dont know but it would be great to have your own half pipe. With all the cash that is put into olympic and other sports traning I dont think it is out of line for the best athlete in a sport to have a private spot to train..

One of these years shawn will get tired of the pipe and park scene and spend some real time up in AK... That will be fun to watch but for now it is cool that he is doin what he can to win gold again!!
