Contributed by Sugarloaf Mountain Ski Club through Ski Museum of Maine
An unidentified male racer is shown getting unwanted air time during the Downhill race on the Narrow Gauge Trail.
This section was in the first third of the 8220 foot long course that had a vertical drop of 2430 feet.
The racer in the picture was skiing at over 60 mph here when a bump in the course gave him an unwanted lift off. The fastest portion of the Narrow Gauge race course was on Kangaroo Hill in the bottom half where speeds approached 80 mph.
