Default Is the tree Sonny Bono hit still there?

I'm being serious here.

It's at Heavenly going down the Orion trail.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wyu_Yjlhp4c

Is the tree still there? Did they cut it down?

Does anyone know the exact spot? Yes, I want to go in there and
find it. Although I won't be going that fast through the trees, in
fact I'll walk.

Thanks.

It is there. Rub the bark and it sings I got you, Babe.

Dickless Henry does. In memory of Sonny, every year he gives a branch
a bj.

I heard they cut it down because of too many people standing around
taking pictures and videos, and creating an unsafe obstruction.

Yes, I believe it is gone. Not much of a run on the video

Hey, did Sonny post to Usenet as TreeGozinya?
Damn, I'm funny.

My understanding is that they cut it down, for exactly that reason.

I figured that, was just wondering.

I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to find the spot. Start down the
Orion trail, go a little ways, then head right towards the trees.
I'll take off my skis and walk through the middle.

Here, look at this trail map. It's 3 megs to load, but shows more
detail.

The thing is, all the reports talk about him being on the Orion trail
under the ski lift. They don't mention that he was on the Dipper
Bowl, which is the black diamond trail. But that's the trail that is
under the lift. So where did he eat it? Between Orion and Dipper
Bowl? I'm thinking that right after he made the right turn on
Orion, he realized he meant to go down Dipper Bowl, and headed through
the trees.

I'm surprised no one has re-created the run he would have taken.
That YouTube video is the closest thing I've even seen to someone
pointing out where it happened. I want someone to go down the Orion
trail, and go through the trees with the same path. It doesn't have
to be at black diamond speed, just show us what happened.

Someone needs to bust the myth that a James Bond style hit squad
killed him. That's just ridiculous.

What myth? And why would anyone want to kill him anyway?

RSA regulars killed Sonny Bono. He was one of the Bobs and was
telling the truth about all of you.

* You know how much the tree was paid that tried to kill Tony Danza at
Deer Valley?!?! *There is alot of money for sub alpine trees to commit
murder of B-celebrities. * *Firs get more than Ponderosa Pines, because
of the ethno discrimination.


Considering how many death threats you guys have made, I'm shocked
that you have not paid a tree to kill me.
