I just got back from Whistler. I just bought my wife a 05 Big Hit and a Dianese. Her first day at Whislter was her 3rd day on a big bike. Here is a few pics of her progression. Her first try she just rode of the small drop. The 2nd try she pulled back a little and dropped it. She says, "easy." She did do the 2nd drop up but I didn't get pics..... I got video. She has progressed so much in just one trip. Next year, maybe she will do the next two. She is now talking about doing a local DH race. Female progression is awesome.
