This would really make me feel invincible if I had that along with me.
hell no bro....just wait till we get a nice amount of snow, find a hill, grab your shovel and some friends and pile up a shit load of snow and build a jump....
spend the day workin' on the timing and stuff there then take it to the resort...
you'll be glad you did, it'll give you better understanding and the basic skills to try it without a pow landing.
you're young and think you're invincible.....but you're not
just cuz you have a neck brace and a helmet doesn't mean another part of your body couldn't get thrashed. Not tryin' to scare you, just want you to be safe and progress the SMART way.
