Donner Pass is known as the treacherous path westward in which travelers in the mid-1800s resulted to cannibalism to survive the harsh conditions. Yes…they ate each other to stay alive. Fast forward to modern time 200+ years later, and the picturesque 2.4 mile highway has caught the eye of some of the world’s top downhill longboarders. With it’s elevation change of over 2,000 feet, aggressive corners and possible top speeds of up to 45 mph, the Sector 9 team took advantage of the closed road to explore the dangers that lurk at every corner.
Riders: Louis Pilloni, A.J. Haiby, Jimmy Riha, Micah Green, and Jackson Shapiera
